“The promotion of the practice of stewardship is important for the mission of the Church and for the spiritual well-being of each individual Christian. Everyone benefits from the sacrificial gift one makes of his time, talent and treasure”
-His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI
This initiative is implemented through the Diocesan Office of Stewardship and educates the faithful on the use of time, talent and treasure to support and develop vibrant parishes.
