The Metropolis of San Francisco Stewardship Ministry invites you to join us for a special presentation by Steven Pappas and Bill Marianes where they will discuss the relevant topic “Life After Festivals (As We’ve Known Them)”. This past year has been an eye-opener for many of our parishes, who had to cancel their Greek Festivals and other major fundraising initiatives due to the pandemic. This put an immediate focus on Stewardship and the importance of cultivating stewards who are fully invested in the parish – not just through financial support – but as engaged participants in ministry and as lay leaders. For too long our parishes have relied upon Festival income to meet their annual budget. Now is the time to think about how your Festival can be re-imagined as an opportunity for outreach and community engagement.
