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.

Re-live Summit 2019 with Father John Riccardo

Ordinary Time is Not Ordinary

Ordinary Time is Not Ordinary

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.”

Happy New Year!

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.
