As the baptized, we are called to grow in our faith to a point where we respond to the call of Jesus Christ regardless of the cost. This leads us to an everyday way of living, not just a series of activities or good deeds. Stewardship is about more than just the 3 Ts of time, talent, and treasure. It is about the one big E, Everything.
Yes, stewardship pertains to everything, and I am responsible for my part of that everything.
– Catherine Doherty, Living the Gospel Without Compromise

Just as we believe that an individual conversion is a continual process, so is the conversion of the faith community. We are constantly letting God in more and more so that he can mold us and, with his guidance, we are always charting an ever-changing course. The journey does not end!
