For many parishioners at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton in Carmel, Indiana, “stewardship” was synonymous with fiscal generosity. On Saturday, January 20th, Tracy Earl Welliver led over ninety staff members and ministry leaders in a daylong immersive exploration of stewardship as a way of life.
The day featured several talks and interactive activities surrounding everyday stewardship, the nurturing of one’s gifts and talents, as well as the key ideas from the U.S. Bishops’ pastoral letter Stewardship: A Disciple’s Response. “People left the day with a totally different understanding of stewardship,” Tracy observed.
The stewardship day was part of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton’s comprehensive approach to building their vibrant parish. Tracy will return in the Fall of 2018 to continue to lead the community in forming a long range pastoral plan.
