The Total Stewardship Curriculum:

Thirtieth Anniversary Edition

A Future Full of Hope


The Diocese of Baton Rouge Office of Stewardship invites you to celebrate with us, as we acknowledge God’s goodness and blessing through 30 years of Total Stewardship commitment and look toward A Future Full of Hope. In this anniversary edition of the Total Stewardship program, you’ll find valuable resources for every stewardship effort. Bulletin articles, homilies, pulpit announcements, a year of devotional articles, and a resource toolbox of 90 ideas help fill a 200-page curriculum binder.

In addition, the curriculum features brochures, commitment cards, a bookmark, poster, a DVD of downloadable resources, and more. A scrapbook section honors thirty years of stewardship faithfulness, and new resources for students honor this year’s Synod focus on youth, family and vocations. Address your stewardship programming needs every week, every month, throughout the year to come. Join us as we build on time-honored service and ministry in the region, prayerfully embracing the opportunity to further the spread of a vital Catholic faith in our Total Stewardship diocese.
