“My hope is that we will seize the opportunity that is literally being forced upon us,
to become more altruistic, more compassionate toward others,
more patient, and indeed more faithful.”
-Archbishop Elpidophoros of America
The annual themes associated with the Stewardship Ministry Campaigns are intended to broaden the general understanding of Orthodox Christian Stewardship
The professionally designed tri-fold brochures from each year are available through OrthodoxMarketplace.com. We encourage parishes to make use of previous themes to educate members on the broader meaning of Orthodox Christian Stewardship as it applies to all aspects of our lives.
Parish Stewardship Team members may add their email to our e-list for Stewardship Ministry updates at www.Stewardship.goarch.org. We also invite you to visit, “like” and “follow” us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/stewardshipministry/
Resources for this year are listed below. Most are available for immediate download. Hard copy of the Quickstart Guide, tri-fold brochure, banner order form and poster on the theme are mailed to every parish of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese in the fall.
