Overview

Stewardship is an increasingly widespread program for enhancing both finances and ministry involvement in Catholic parishes. Called to Be Stewards describes actual detailed examples of adopting a stewardship approach to funding and to ministry. This book explains the roles of the pastor, parish councils, and stewardship committees in establishing and managing a stewardship program, examines how to integrate a stewardship approach into everyday parish life, and tells how to generate broader parishioner support.

Through the use of case studies, this book describes how eight Catholic parishes adopt a stewardship methodology and highlights the challenges of implementing stewardship in fundraising. Each chapter offers both pastor and parishioner accounts of stewardship implementation and growth, from parishes just beginning a stewardship program to those with a well established and flourishing program.
