Stewardship

Help us help the men in formation! Become an IDS steward! 

Stewardship is a way of life - a way of thanking God for all blessings by returning a generous portion of time, talent and treasure. Stewardship engenders a spirituality that deepens our relationship with the Lord and involves intentional, planned and proportionate giving of our time, talent and treasure.

Our first responsibility is to take care of our own needs and the needs of our families – not necessarily all our wants. In looking at what we need versus what we want, we end up making choices that place material things and money in their proper perspective.

Stewardship is based on an individual’s need to give, not on the Church’s need to receive.

IDS encourages all candidates, the ordained community and the faithful of the Archdiocese to a life of prayer – prayer for families, neighborhoods, workplaces – prayer and support for the global Catholic Christian community 

Pray for all of our gifted men and their supportive wives, and please make your tax-deductible donation payable to:
