Parish Table Talk
- Five Keys to Developing Stewardship in the Hispanic Community: On Oct. 14 at the Hispanic Conference at St. John’s, Columbia, Luis Soto (read about him in The Denver Catholic) 0f the Catholic Leadership Institute, explained why we need to:
- Understand the Hispanic presence in all areas of parish life.
- Let stewardship flow from ministry with Hispanics, who want to serve others.
- Affirm the values in Hispanic cultures that support a spirituality of stewardship.
- Develop a strong sense of belonging as the good soil of stewardship.
- Educate our Hispanic community in simple, relatable ways, since “stewardship” doesn’t translate well.

James Mallon, author of Divine Renovation: From to Maintenance to Mission will lead you and your pastoral team through proven successful strategies to renew your parish life and evangelize your community.
