Stewardship Today Comes to an End



In a year of significant and pervasive change, the Baton Rouge Catholic Diocese Office of Stewardship has come to the end of an era in publishing stewardship and fundraising materials. With this mid-year edition of our monthly online newsletter, Stewardship Today will cease publication. This July issue is our last.

Begun as an occasional print piece nearly two decades ago, Stewardship Today—also distributed as The Stewardship Times and Stewardship Select—was the creation of the department’s founder and longtime director, the late Mark Blanchard. Mark envisioned a free set of devotional articles intended to provide both instruction and encouragement to anyone interested in a life of meaningful Catholic stewardship. To his credit, regular subscribers found each issue a worthwhile resource, helping us to honor God’s call “as good stewards of God’s varied grace” (1 Peter 4:10b).

To all of you who returned the favor—who read each month’s material, shared our goals, and passed along your thoughts, thank you for your lasting support and insightful engagement. We minister together as God’s people, and it has been a privilege to serve with you. Please accept our gratitude for “your partnership in the Gospel from the first day until now” (Philippians 1:5). 

Stewardship Today is a monthly devotional newsletter designed to assist Catholics everywhere in developing a greater understanding of the role of stewardship in everyday life.
All we are, and all we possess, are gifts from God for our use and for the blessing of others. Through wise stewardship, we invest our time, our talents and our treasures to the glory of God.
