What is God calling us to as individuals, as a parish, and as a diocese? We know there is a culture shift happening in the church, and the pandemic seems to have expedited this shift.

What does remain the same is that stewardship is discipleship: it calls us to live all aspects of our life in the light of faith in Jesus.
