Catholic Stewardship of Time, Talent and Treasure Stewardship is a way of life for Catholics. “As each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God’s varied grace” (1 Pt 4:10). What was true in the early church is still true today. All the baptized are called to grow in their conversion to Christian stewardship. As Christian stewards we receive God’s gifts gratefully, cultivate them responsibly, share them lovingly in justice with others, and return them with increase to the Lord.
