Christian stewardship is a way of life based on the awareness that everything we have and everything we are comes from God.
A Christian steward is 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.
Each member of the Church is called to practise stewardship. We are called to look outward and to place ourselves at the service of the entire human community, especially those most in need.
Stewarship of Time: Stewardship of time is more than inviting people to spend a few hours volunteering in the parish. It is helping people to look at their lives, 24 hours each day, as an opportunity to serve the Lord and to build up the Kingdom.
Stewardship is a life-long process; following Jesus is the work of a lifetime.
Stewardship of Talent: Our call to Stewardship encourages us to share our giftedness. Our special talents and abilities, things that we feel passionate about, things that might be used to describe our personalities, such as being compassionate, hospitable, organized, having patience or wisdom are all part of our unique giftedness. Our gifts are given to be used in service to our families, for those around us, for those in need and for our many ministries within the Church. Each of us has received grace and a unique set of gifts from God.
When we volunteer to work for our parish or help our neighbor, we share our giftedness for the good of others.
The Holy Spirit fires our passion to use our talents. For instance, some are passionate about the cause of the poor while others may be passionate about praying and visiting with the sick.
What are your talents?
Stewardship of Treasure: Stewardship of treasure is not about giving to a need, but rather it is about the need to give. Stewardship is living out a commitment to be Christ-centered rather than self-centered. It is important for us to share our money and our material possessions because all the good things that God has made are meant to be shared. We need to return thanks to a loving God for the many blessings we have received.
How much am I expected to give? The question Stewardship asks is, "How much do we want to give!" This
means giving from the heart as a faith response.
