The Office of Stewardship for the Diocese of Rapid City

Characteristics of a Stewardship Parish 

The Diocese of Rapid City offers three primary lenses for which to build the foundations of stewardship in our parishes –

  • Generous Hospitality: invitation, welcome and fellowship;
  • Lively Faith: prayer, study and formation;
  • Dedicated Discipleship: to love God and to love neighbor with an intentional heart.

Living a life of stewardship means whole-heartedly peering through these three indispensable lenses so that we may truly live a Catholic Way of Life, hearing the voice of Jesus, following Him and imitating His way of life.

The Characteristics of a Stewardship Parish Manual offers a roadmap for implementing these lenses and transforming your parish.
