Resource Toolbox


Need a little assistance with incorporating stewardship as a way of life in your parish?  Stewardship is an ongoing process of conversion. In order to keep it fresh and alive, it often helps to go back to the basics.

The Office of Stewardship and Development has compiled the basics on everything from annual stewardship planning to building up a stewardship committee.  And don’t forget to visit this Resource Toolbox regularly for updated materials.
