Stewardship is the grateful response of a Christian disciple who recognizes and receives God’s gifts and shares these gifts in love of God and neighbour.
~ Catholic Diocese of Witchita
Stewardship is a profound spirituality that enables us to live out our Christian discipleship to the full. It is a way of re-connecting what seems to be the ‘ordinariness’ of our daily living with the extra-ordinariness of our life in God. Stewardship begins with the simple awareness that God is the ultimate giver, beginning with the gift of our very life and everything else that follows – all that we have and hold. By God’s continual goodness and providence present in our lives, we are able to know what we know, and have what we have. Deeply conscious that God gives us all that we have and hold for our personal well-being and life, stewardship, therefore, calls us as Christian disciples to reveal to others what God’s goodness is all about. We do this by using our God-given gifts in the way that God intends.
