Stewardship: Our Way Of Life

What is Stewardship?

What is Stewardship? Let's begin by stating what Stewardship is not. Stewardship is not about money. It is not a fundraising program. It is not about building a new parish hall. It is not a new fad or environmental word.

Stewardship is a way of life.

According to the Bishops' Pastoral Letter of 1992, Stewardship: A Disciple's Response, a Christian Steward is:
  • One who receives God's gifts gratefully: Gratitude
  • Cherishes and tends them in a responsible and accountable manner: Responsibility
  • Shares them in justice and love with others: Generosity
  • Returns them with increase to the Lord: Returns
