RE: Formation Modules for  Stewardship

My brothers in the priestly ministry:

In pursuit of our ecclesial vision mission ICTHUS and in recognition of the spirituality of stewardship as the means to reach our pastoral goals, I am sending you the enclosed book SERVANT LEADERSHIP by Frank Padilla. Among all the resources I have encountered on the theme of servant-leadership-stewardship, this is the best material I have found so far. It is divided into six chapters which can easily be used as six modular talks for our formation in stewardship. The themes are comprehensive and the explanations are simple and down to earth.

Please compose a STEWARDSHIP TEAM for your parish or school community. I suggest that you select from the pool of lay leaders in your parish or school who have attended or are enrolled currently in the School of Lay Leaders (SLL).

A team of six lay formators will be ideal. You can assign them one chapter of the enclosed book for their study, mastery and delivery in the parish stewardship formation program. This team can conduct formation seminars  in the school or parish to disseminate the spirituality of servant-leadership-stewardship. Let me reiterate that the stewardship program is not a finance scheme but a spirituality formation. Through these stewardship formation programs, may we be saints together.

I entrust this matter to your prompt pastoral action. Thank you.

Sincerely yours,

+SOCRATES B. VILLEGAS

Archbishop of Lingayen Dagupan
