Characteristics of a Stewardship Parish

The three primary lenses in which the Diocese of Rapid City views Stewardship are — Generous Hospitality: invitation, welcome and fellowship; Lively Faith: prayer, study and formation; Dedicated Discipleship: to love God and to love neighbor with an intentional heart. Living a life of stewardship means whole-heartedly peering through these three indispensable lenses so that we may truly live a Catholic Way of Life, hearing the voice of Jesus, following Him and imitating His way of life.

The very heart of discipleship is faithful stewardship. We are invited to be stewards of everything the Lord has created and given to us, receiving it joyfully with gratitude and then sacrificially sharing with others from what we have received.
