A Stewardship Way of Life
“As each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God’s varied graces.” 1 Peter 4:10
A Stewardship Way of Life Leads to Discipleship
The US Bishop’s Pastoral Letter of Stewardship invites all Catholics to invest themselves – time, talent and treasure – in the mission and ministries of the Church. This invitation is a challenge for each of us to live a life of gratitude, accountability and generosity. A stewardship way of life is a way that truly seeks to live as a disciple of Jesus. Stewardship is based on a biblical view of God as Creator and ourselves as servants. From this perspective we are encouraged to develop or renew the practice of regularly reflecting on God’s love for us and the goodness in our lives. With a sure sense of our blessings in mind we are encouraged to make GRATITUDE the fundamental motive for our giving. The Bible also reminds us that as servants we are accountable to God for the use of our gifts of time, talent and treasure – this is STEWARDSHIP.
Are you or you and your family ready for the challenge to invest yourself – to give your time, talent and treasure to the mission and the ministries of St. Philip Neri Catholic Church? Here are our 2020 Stewardship materials to help with your discernment and commitment.
