About Us/Staff

 

Mission

As faithful disciples of Jesus Christ, we are called to build up the people of God in the diocese of Wichita in holiness and joy through works of love.

'As each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God's varied grace.' (1 Peter 4:10)

Purpose

To serve our pastors and parish leaders in their role of forming parishioners to become Christian stewards.

  • Keeps alive the stewardship message in our diocese by promoting the spirituality of stewardship and conversion.
  • Helps pastors and lay leaders articulate the stewardship message by providing training and ongoing formation for implementing the spirituality of stewardship in concrete and practical ways.
  • Provides the means for each parish and parishioner to renew their commitment to be a grateful disciple through the stewardship way of life, especially in the parish annual stewardship commitment (renewal).
  • Helps pastors and parish leaders recognize and receive the gifts of parishioners, and provides opportunities for them to share these gifts in love of God and neighbor.
  • Helps pastors and parish leaders communicate the value of the United Catholic Stewardship in meeting parish, diocesan and universal needs of the Church.

We welcome your questions, thoughts, ideas and concerns. We are here to serve. Contact us either by phone or email.
