The parishes of the Catholic Diocese of Wichita embraced stewardship as the way of life beginning in 1985.
“The Spirituality of Stewardship” formation series was created in 2010 to assist parishes throughout our diocese and beyond develop a deeper understanding of stewardship and in the formation of Christian disciples. The primary emphasis of the series is faith formation, not the practical steps or best practices of a stewardship parish. Jesus spent three years forming His disciples before sending them out in service.
The primary resources of this formation series are Sacred Scripture, the Catechism of the Catholic Church, and the Pastoral Letter of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, Stewardship: A Disciple’s Response.
The series includes videos and a facilitator manual which includes instructions and lesson plans. There are four sessions. Each session begins with a prayer that is found in the manual and a 30 minute video. Following the video, there are small group activities designed to strengthen the understanding of the material. Each of the four sessions is designed between 60 and 75 minutes.
In order to defray the costs of production and reproducing the series, we ask for $100.00. By purchasing the series, permission is granted for unlimited copies of handouts for the participants.
It is a blessing and grace for us to share this formation series with you. We believe stewardship is the grateful response of a Christian disciple who recognizes and receives God’s gifts and shares these gifts in love of God and neighbor. This formation series is our way of sharing what we have received.
