The Everyday Stewardship Vision

As the baptized, we are called to grow in our faith to a point where we respond to the call of Jesus Christ regardless of the cost. This leads us to an everyday way of living, not just a series of activities or good deeds. When we find ourselves truly living a stewardship way of life, we realize that we have transformed, to aid in transforming our parishes and then the world around us.

Grow Parish Engagement

LPi offers a wide variety of coaching and consultative services to help your parish grow in mature discipleship and a stewardship way of life. Stewardship catechesis, strengths coaching for both leadership bodies or individuals, or processes geared toward creating a greater unity in parish collaboratives are all ways that LPi can partner with you to help make your communities clearer reflections of the Kingdom of God.


Building Stewardship in Your Parish

A typical path to success in this area often begins with a stewardship day event for all the leaders and primary stakeholders in your community. Next, we assist you in forming small reflection groups, journeying together and focused on the key characteristics of a good everyday steward. Finally, a parish mission for the entire community over several days will help solidify the concepts and principals already introduced.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

Just had to take this opportunity to tell you Thank You! I ordered several copies of Everyday Stewardship last year. It is a refreshing and beautiful way to witness the many opportunities to put Discipleship in Action! We are using this book to help form our community in the Spirituality of Stewardship including our professional staff, Stewardship Council, and I just gave 48 copies to our individual Ministry Leads this past summer while meeting one-on-one with them during a Year-End Recap meeting with our Pastor. We asked them to be creative and use it as a resource to help form individual ministry members. Just wanted you to know of the value and emphasis we are placing on this beautiful resource! Thanks for allowing Him to work through you to impact the spiritual journey of so many Disciples.
