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.

Re-live Summit 2019 with Father John Riccardo
In September 2019, Father John Riccardo spoke to a sold out crowd at Terra Sancta about our journey with Christ: Created. Captured. Rescued.
Hear Father John speak on these themes and be set free to receive the love of the Father.
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.
When we move from Christmas or Easter back into Ordinary Time, the return of green vestments and green adornments on the altar always calls to mind the song my youngest son learned at Catechesis of the Good Shepherd about the liturgical calendar. In it, the kids sang, “green is for the growing time.”
“Rescue. Set free. Liberate. Deliver. Save.
These are the words Scripture uses to describe why God became a man in Jesus.
The broad strokes of what happens at Mass can be traced in two basic movements . . the Father gives Himself through the Son in the Holy Spirit. . . He does so in order that the Church may do something with this gift; namely, offer it as its own back to the Father.
Not surprisingly, science confirms what we know as Christians to be true: gratitude is a virtue, a good habit, that if cultivated over time, makes us happier, healthier and, we might add, holier.
Merry Christmas from the Office of Stewardship.
Man was created for greatness—for God himself; he was created to be filled by God. But his heart is too small for the greatness to which it is destined. It must be stretched…
“Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to do it.”
The daily life we live, apparently so ordinary, can be a path to sanctity
The Office of Stewardship wishes you a Blessed Thanksgiving!
