Christian Living and the Practice of Stewardship
As each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God’s varied grace. (1 Peter 4:10)
Stewardship, born of God’s love, summons all members of the Christian community to a new way of life. Each of us, gifted by the Holy Spirit in a unique way, is invited to share in Christ’s Priestly, Prophetic and Kingly ministry. By sharing the truth of the Gospel and serving others, we witness to His presence in the world today.
Stewardship is an all encompassing lifestyle, a life of total accountability to God through responsible Christian living. It begins by acknowledging God as the creator and owner of all. Stewards see themselves as caretakers of God’s gifts. Their gratitude to God for His many gifts is expressed through acts of prayer, worship, and in various forms of service and giving.
Stewards eagerly share their gifts out of love for God and one another.
The Office of the Lay Apostolate promotes the spirit of stewardship to help people live the life that God intended. We believe stewardship will intensify each individual’s relationship with God, resulting in revitalized and strengthened parish communities. Come, share, give of the blessings you have been given.

Is Stewardship still a priority in the Archdiocese of Edmonton?
In this presentation from Stewardship Day 2010, Archbishop Smith discusses the relationship between stewardship and the New Evangelization, and how they fit within our three archdiocesan priorities: Evangelization, Faith Formation and Forming a Culture of Vocations. The relationship is captured by a continual posing of the two questions that arose from the Pentecost: "What does this mean? What must we do?"
