St. Nektarios is a full stewardship parish
that requires no minimum pledge in order to
be a member. Our Stewardship Program encourages
parishioners to pledge donations in any amount,
either as one-time, regular, or periodic payments.
Our annual Stewardship Pledge Drive occurs
in the fall for the next calendar year—parishioners
are usually contacted for participation at
that time, although new members and current
members may complete a Stewardship Pledge
Card at any time.
