"The Lord God planted a garden and placed there human persons to cultivate and care for it."

Gen. 2:8,15

Enhanced Stewardship

In addition to our personal response, we can cultivate our garden through our church and diocesan organizations and through external organizations. The U.S. Bishops' Pastoral Letter on Stewardship endorses the concept of stewardship as a faith response. As we make a commitment to a faith response, we also must have tools to help with the practical implementation of stewardship programs.

The pastor letter reminds us that to be a steward requires a total commitment to discipleship. The message challenges us to resist the pressures of our secular society and to devote ourselves to responding to the call to discipleship by cherishing our gifts, tending them and sharing them, and then returning our gifts with increase to the Lord.
