Stewardship is a way of life. It is an extension
of our spiritual life in which we return our gifts in gratitude to a
loving God for all that He has provided.
Stewardship is based on
the biblical teachings of the Old Testament and the New Testament
teachings of Jesus. Today's steward is called to embrace
scripture, which provides insight, revelation and direction in our
lives. In many ways the Stewardship Way of Life is a radical
departure from today's consumer culture which celebrates wealth and material achievement. As disciples of
Jesus we are called to share
and to serve in Christ's name and to be active members of a worshiping
community known as parish. In everyday life, good stewardship
Humbly accepting the fact that all we have and all
that we are comes from God.
Sharing with God and others the first portion of
what God gave you.
We give to God and others as Jesus did in gratitude
for all God gave us,
trusting that God will meet our personal needs.

Is this reflected in my participation and support?
How does my faith affect my support of other charitable causes?
Am I involved in other activities outside the Church to help
Am I a good steward of my time, talent and
Stewardship is a way of life...sharing myself and
all that I have with God and others.
Saint Elizabeth Seton, pray for us!
