Focus on Faith: Stewardship of Creation

This month’s Catholic Social Teaching is Stewardship of Creation which is the foundational theme for Kindergarten.  God’s creation is a sacred gift, entrusted to our care. Clearly, stewardship has come to mean more a way of life than a single, particular action. Stewardship is a Christian lifestyle. It is an ongoing process of integration whereby we relate our whole person to the whole action of God. By acknowledging our dependence upon God for all life, we are called to regard both material things and human capacities not as private possessions or as the property of limited groups, but as God’s. It is the obligation of a responsible steward to be one who cares for the goods entrusted to him and not one who plunders, to be one who conserves and enhances and not one who destroys and dissipates. Responsible stewardship demands a consideration for the common good. Using this teaching, our school will incorporate this theme into all curriculum areas, giving your children opportunities to:

· understand that all of creation is good and sacred

· recognize that the goods of the earth are loving gifts from God 

· treat all humans with respect because they are created in God’s image and are known and loved by God

· work to preserve the gifts of creation for future generations

· recognize the spiritual and the sacramental dimension of the created world

 “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
