Description
 
If you say you are a follower of Jesus, then you must be a steward of God's creation. That is the challenge presented in this pastoral statement from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. For pastors; parish and diocesan finance, development, and stewardship committees; coordinators of adult faith formation, youth ministry, and religious education; and evangelization. Also includes the summary version To Be a Christian Steward and Stewardship and Development in Catholic Dioceses and Parishes: Resource Manual.

How Do I Use . . .
  • Challenge students to make a single change in their lifestyles that will reduce the waste of natural resources.
  • Ask students to read To Be a Christian Steward, the summary that is included in Stewardship: A Disciple's Response.
  • What does stewardship mean for someone their age? How can they live a life of good stewardship?
  • Ask students to compose, as individuals or as a group, a sermon on stewardship. Which of Jesus' teachings would they use?
  • Encourage students to transform their Lenten fasting practices into Easter "feasting" ones. How can they share their gifts and resources more generously?

5 of 5 Landmark document! Needs more awareness. June 9, 2020
Reviewer: Renee Underwood from Fort Worth, TX United States  
This is an outstanding pastoral letter that stands the test of time. I have read it many times, gifted it many times, studied it with groups many times, and made presentations on it to parish teams and diocesan staff members. Sadly, the USCCB seems to have "moved on" from making this document and its teaching a priority. Yet, right here (along with their landmark pastoral "Go and Make Disciples" that was published the same year) are the blueprints for how all are called to follow Christ.
