Stewardship Ministry Info

  

Our hope is for Catholics to embrace the concept of stewardship fully and understand that stewardship is a way of life, a way to give back what God has blessed us with. This giving back isn't limited to the parish or the diocese. It encompasses much more. 

A rich description is found in the 1993 pastoral from the National Conference of Catholic Bishops entitled: "Stewardship: A Disciple's Response". 

The bishops call us to:

       Receive God's gifts gratefully;

 

      Cultivate them responsibly;

 

      Share them lovingly with others; and

 

      Return them with increase to God.

Stewardship includes the concept of using wisely and justly our human and financial resources. It is frequently expressed as a call to give our time, talent and financial resources to God, especially through the Church.
