“Let us overcome the fear of getting our hands dirty so as to help those in need.” – Pope Francis

Our identity as Christians includes a fundamental call to stewardship.

In 1992 the U.S. Bishops defined Christian stewardship as “one who receives God’s gifts gratefully, cherishes and tends them in a responsible manner, shares them in justice and love with others and returns them with increase to the Lord.”

This is the foundation on which our Christian Stewardship Program is constructed and it is designed to be much more than the mere accumulation of service hours. A deeply meaningful stewardship project is one that has been the subject of deep reflection and prayer. It is to this end that the following has been set forth in three parts: Learning, Listening and Sharing.
