Prayer

ICSC January Stewardship Prayer

Prayer is the first principle to embracing stewardship as a way of life. Through prayer, we confront our own spiritual disorganization and chaos and create a sacred inner space within ourselves where we can meet and have a conversation with God. Exercising good stewardship over our life of prayer is the first essential step to our ultimate goal in the spiritual life: to live unceasingly with a deep joy in the presence of God. On the next page we have included a January stewardship prayer for your consideration.   Continue Reading…

Models of Stewardship

Stewardship Saints

St. Angela Merici is a remarkable stewardship saint who gave her life in service to the Church and the poor. Born in a small town in Italy and orphaned at a very young age, Angela became an educator of young, impoverished women. She believed that education and Christian formation were especially needed for young girls. Angela established a group of women who dedicated themselves to Christ and would later become the Ursuline nuns, the first group of women religious to work outside of a cloister and the first teaching order of women. Angela’s feast day is January 27. To read more about her click HERE.

January Stewardship Reflection: Exercising Stewardship of God’s Gift’s in the New Year

January is a time for new beginnings. Some people make New Year resolutions. They become very focused, using all their energies to reach their goals. Others drift through the year with little direction, living for the moment and never thinking about where they are headed. Most people probably live somewhere in between. But in Christ, we have a purpose and a direction when we allow ourselves to be nourished by the Eucharist and guided by the Holy Spirit.
