Strengthen Stewardship Now & Forever

Strengthening Your Parish’s Stewardship Program

About Strengthen Stewardship Now & Forever

The “Strengthen Stewardship Now & Forever” program is designed to help parishes instill the value of stewardship as a way of life, as a path to greater spiritual growth and as a source for strengthening faith for Orthodox Christians.

Stewardship is the natural outgrowth of a parish’s efforts to reach out, welcome and engage its parishioners in the life of the Church. The program and this page offers guidance to parishes for inspiring generosity among the faithful.
