Stewardship: The Lifestyle of Christian Discipleship

Whenever faithful Catholics devote themselves to daily prayer, to service, and to financial generosity, they have practiced stewardship. In essence, whenever we use our personal gifts to serve the Lord, we are being Christian Stewards.

As faithful members of Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we have come to know that stewardship isn’t just a “program” or a fundraising effort. It’s a commitment to a way of life – the lifestyle of Christian Discipleship. Practically speaking, it means making time for personal prayer. It means choosing to serve in parish ministries.

It means planning a generous, consistent gift to the weekly offertory. Over time, as each person embraces their personal commitments, our parish can become a powerful witness to the abundant life that Jesus has promised.
