What is Stewardship?

What is Stewardship?


“Stewardship is a spiritual process that calls us to conversion and into deeper relationship with Christ.” – The Catholic Steward

Christian stewardship is one of the fruits of discipleship. A Christian disciple makes a mature choice to accept Jesus’ call without counting the cost, and stewardship is an outward expression of such a choice. In responding wholeheartedly to the Lord’s invitation, the mature disciple recognizes God’s gifts, strives to take care of them, and shares them out of love for God and neighbor.

Everything we have, everything we are, and everything we will become is a gift from Almighty God. As stewards of those gifts, we are called to return a portion of our time, talent and treasure in gratitude for God’s great bounty. The Diocese of St. Augustine — with its parishes, offices, agencies, schools, and outreach ministries — has numerous volunteer opportunities and many avenues to give of your financial resources. To volunteer your time and talent, please contact your parish, school or agency directly.
