Stewardship is
STEWARDSHIP IS

  • Not an activity...........................it is an attitude

  • Not the latest fad......................it is biblically based

  • Not a way to raise money................it is a way to attain holiness

  • Not just a decision of the head.......it requires a conversion of the heart



Stewardship1
STEWARDSHIP our Catholic faith

  • All we have is a gift from God who asks us to use it for God’s work on earth

  • Stewardship is about heeding the call to be Christ’s disciples on earth - a conscious decision to follow Jesus, no matter the cost.

  • It involves a need to give, rather than giving to a need

  • It is an understanding of a total way of life; a conversion of mind and heart


Stewardship2
STEWARDSHIP our Catholic faith

  • It’s about asking ourselves ‘what do we own and what owns us?

  • An act if worship, not an act of obligation

  • It is not about something we do, it is about who we are and whose we are.


Stewards of vocation
Stewards of Vocation our Catholic faith

  • Jesus calls us, his disciples, to a new way of life - the Christian way of life- of which stewardship is part.

  • But Jesus does not call us as nameless people in a faceless crowd. He calls us individually, by name. Each one of us - clergy, religious, lay person; married, single; adult, child - has a personal vocation. God intends each one of us to play a unique role in carrying out the divine plan.

  • The challenge is to understand our role- our vocation- and to respond generously to this call from God. SDR.
