Stewardship

 

Tell them to do good, to be rich in good works, to be generous, ready to share.
— Timothy 6:17-19

 

Stewardship is a way of life; a conversion of mind and heart

Everything we have is a gift from God. We express our thanksgiving by giving back to God a portion of his gift—by giving of our time in prayer, service to others, and giving generously of our resources, by knowing, living, and sharing our faith, by promoting vocations for the abundant harvest, and by helping preserve our earth for our generation and the next.

 

We are called to be Christian Stewards

The U.S. Catholic bishops, in their pastoral letter, Stewardship: A Disciple’s Response, describes a good steward as someone with four general qualities:

  1. Receives God’s gifts gratefully
  2. Cherishes and tend them in a responsible manner
  3. Shares them in justice and love with all
  4. Returns them with increase to the Lord
