What does Stewardship mean to Christ the King School?

It is a lifestyle, a life of total accountability and responsibility. It is the acknowledging of God as the Creator and Owner of all. Christian stewards see themselves as the caretakers of all Gods’ gifts. Gratitude for these many gifts is expressed in prayer, worship, offering and action. Stewardship is a way of life. It is a way of thanking God for all our blessings by returning to God a portion of the many gifts (everything we have, for instance, our time, talent and treasure) that we have been given. It involves the intentional, planned and proportionate giving of all we have.

Stewardship encourages everyone to participate in the task of building the Kingdom of God. When we explain that God has given each of us certain things, that these gifts are our responsibility to care for, and that we are accountable for what we do with these gifts, then there is no doubt that everyone should be involved. Stewardship rejects the notion that we must “have it all” and instead, demonstrates the value of giving of love, in service and in justice.

Stewardship is based on the spiritual principles of the Old Testament and the teachings of Jesus Christ.

Stewardship at Christ the King School has encouraged students to make a difference and to become involved. As students leave Christ the King School, we hope they have developed a strong set of character virtues and interpersonal habits through this program that will serve as the foundation of who they will become in the future. Through our FAITH guidelines and Stewardship program we help our students become caretakers of God’s gifts. We teach them the value of giving love, in service and in justice.

Where stewardship has been implemented, both givers and receivers lives have been changed. True conversion has taken place in the hearts and minds of many who embrace Stewardship as a way life.

“Christ has no body now on earth but yours, no hands but yours, your are the eyes through which he is... go about doing good, yours are the hands with which he is to bless people now." -St. Teresa of Avila
