Podcast series explains Stewardship

Service is a public expression of our faith. It’s how we express our belief in God and live out Jesus’s teachings. In this month’s podcast, we conclude our discussion with Fr. Stephen Jones about the Four Pillars of Stewardship — focusing on the concept of service.

This podcast is the fourth and final episode in our series about the Four Pillars of Stewardship with Fr. Jones, the diocesan director of stewardship. This series is designed to help us deepen our understanding of the spirituality of stewardship as we approach the October Catholic Stewardship Renewal. All of the episodes in this series are available at diojeffcity.org/podcast.



 "As each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God's varied grace." (1 Peter 4:10)

All Christians are called to service by virtue of their baptism. The call to priesthood and religious life is heard at various ages and circumstances of life; God’s call is often incarnated through the words, example, and support of others.

Help us to awaken the call within those called to ordination or vowed religious life.
