The Office of Stewardship for the Diocese of Rapid City

Helping you build a Stewardship Parish
and cultivate a Catholic Way of Life

In the Diocese of Rapid City, Stewardship is a broad vision for the parish and the individual that encompasses everything necessary for people to feel welcomed, fed, and nourished in their relationship with God and with neighbor.

This vision is built on a strong Foundation and supported by 3 Pillars-

Generous Hospitality: Welcome, Invitation, Fellowship

Lively Faith: Prayer, Formation, Study

Dedicated Discipleship: Intentional Love of God and Neighbor

The Office of Stewardship offers resources and support to use these pillars to build a stewardship parish and cultivate a Catholic way of life.
