|What is Stewardship?
It is not a new program or a single action or a number of actions. It is the personal conversion and renewal of one’s heart and mind, i.e. living the Eucharist day by day with gratitude and love in an entire life.
Stewardship of time involves first our time spent with God in prayer and sacrament, then the time spent in service to others inspired and guided by the Holy Spirit.
Stewardship of talent is sharing God’s unique gifts bestowed on us. It is our loving response to God’s appointed calling to do HIS will, to proclaim the Good News of Salvation, to heal the afflicted, to feed the hungry, to care for one another, to give full life just as Jesus did.
Stewardship of treasure is taking care of and sharing our blessings, i.e. in what we do with our blessings from the heart as a faith response.
Stewardship is giving of the first fruits of our time, talent and treasure.
