Students as stewards: Ways kids can use gifts for God's glory

Catholic schools in the Diocese of Grand Rapids nurture the whole child, and that includes preparing students for a lifetime of faith. Stewardship is one way of living our faith, by glorifying God through the time, talent and treasure he has given to us.

From even a young age, students can practice stewardship, including in how they approach their schoolwork. Doing your best, being thankful for the opportunity of education, and using your time wisely are just a few ways students can be stewards.

The September issue of Stewardship News from the Diocese of Grand Rapids includes a list of ideas for stewardship at school; it can be read at this link or below. Consider sharing these ideas with your kids around the dinner table, during car trips or while relaxing together.

Catholic schools in the Diocese of Grand Rapids are an alliance of 31 vibrant learning communities (26 elementary and five high schools) serving more than 6,600 preschool through 12th grade students within seven counties in West Michigan. Our schools inspire young people to grow in Catholic faith and grace, achieve more in school and life, develop creativity and character, and feel welcomed and cherished for their unique gifts. We partner with parents to awaken the whole child to a world of light and life — that grows better and brighter when children reach their potential. Find your Catholic school at this link.
