Stewardship – Faith on Fire, Hearts & Minds Transformed The vision of stewardship is clear. It is rooted in Scripture, Church teaching,
and the sacraments, particularly our baptism. We grow as Christian stewards by cultivating the virtues of prayer, humility, gratitude, simplicity, generosity, responsibility, trust, patience, perseverance, and mercy in our lives. The fruits of a greater commitment to stewardship are thriving, growing, communities whose members are passionate about their baptismal call: where all are seen as
gifted and chosen by God to be a light to the world. Stewardship Office, The Archdiocese of Winnipeg,
