The Office of Stewardship
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.
The Director of the Office of Stewardship offers weekly reflections on the “Living this Catholic Way of Life” blog.
You’ll find thoughtful refelctions on Scripture, suggestions for tools to use at your parish, and stories of those emboldened and enlivened in their faith.
The Office of Stewardship offers inspiring blogs, videos, testimonials, and print materials to help encourage parishioners to delve deeper into the heart of God and come alive in their faith.
Take a look at our resources page for modules to share with parish leaders, committee members, or to study on your own.
We’re committed to helping you grow in your faith and giving you the opportunity to help you deepen your love of God and of neighbor.
We host several events throughout the year to encourage you in each pillar of Stewardship.
We’ve developed several assessments and tools to help you take a pulse of your parish, determine your areas of greatest need, and learn where to focus your resources most effectively.
Schedule a time to meet with our office one-on-one to create a customized plan to awaken your parish.
