Mission Statement

LAY STEWARDSHIP MISSION STATEMENT

 

The call of Christ is a call for all to spread the Good News.  To quote the Catechism of the Catholic Church,

 

“Christ sent forth the apostles he had chosen, commissioning them to proclaim the gospel: "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, to the close of the age…

  

Those who with God's help have welcomed Christ's call and freely responded to it are urged on by love of Christ to

proclaim the Good News everywhere in the world. This treasure, received from the apostles, has been faithfully guarded by their successors. All Christ's faithful are called to hand it on from generation to generation, by professing the faith, by living it in fraternal sharing, and by celebrating it in liturgy and prayer.”

 

Today we recognize that not only are few of us prepared to share the Gospel, we live in a society that rejects and now attacks these messages.

 

Lay Stewardship has been created to focus on bringing that message to the secular world through the media.

 

Through the use of secular media outlets which include television, billboards, newspapers and radio to name a few, we hope to proclaim and defend the teachings of Christ.

 

The organization’s focus will be on a local regional level.  Trying to proclaim the Gospel in our little part of the world. Though Lay Stewardship will support local diocesan functions we will remain completely separate from the local political diocesan infrastructures.

 

The focus will be to bring both a timely but eternal message with information direct from the Holy See and other well known organizations.

 

We will be open and available to work with those groups of Christians who have already started their own lay apostolates in the world.

 

Above all we wish to faithfully submit to the Holy See and work in unison with all of those who faithfully transmit Christ’s teachings.
