ICSC Catholic Stewardship Moments
The International Catholic Stewardship Council (ICSC) offers a variety of resources to foster stewardship in your parish. One of their most popular resources is a monthly eBulletin that includes articles designed to foster a culture of generosity. In addition, the newsletter includes a section called Stewardship Moments, which presents weekly bulletin reflections based on that week’s Liturgical readings. ICSC resources are provided so that parish office staff can place them in bulletins or offer as a complete reprint.
