A way of life rooted in scripture
God calls us to care for all that has been entrusted to us - the material and spiritual blessings, our community, the earth and environment, our relationships and ourselves.
We celebrate biblical stewardship throughout the year. Basilica ministries are a guide to making stewardship part of daily life. Join us as we explore six aspects of biblical stewardship:
Global: Promote peace throughout the world
Local: Create bridges between communities and advocate for those in need
Ecological: Leave the world a better place for future generations
Personal: Care for ourselves in body, mind and spirit
Gifts: Share our knowledge, talent, love and experience to serve others
Financial: Give generously and joyfully
A STEWARD'S CREED
I believe in the gifts of God.
I am grateful for all I have been given.
These gifts are not mine to have, but mine to share.
When they are shared, my gifts will make a difference for others.
I believe that the act of giving is more important than the gift itself.
I will make giving a priority.
I will give to others because so much of what I have comes from others.
I give of who I am, what I do, and what I have.
To my family, my faith, and my community, I will give of myself.
As Christ gave so much for so many, so I will give to you.
And, I will be thankful for the opportunity to give.
