others, the following principles: Stewardship is a way of life and
a spirituality It involves tithing, has biblical foundation, and
it promotes the need to give vs. giving to a need. And finally
stewardship is a means to an end — evangelization. Stewardship
as a way of life in the parish provides the resources needed to

die earth. Learn more about how to get your parish involved in
