Based on a survey of stewardship parishes across the country, this is the most comprehensive analysis of both financial and non-financial stewardship activities ever published. Author Charles E. Zech explores more than just the impact of stewardship on parish income -- he also analyzes time and talent contributions, measuring everything from volunteer activity to Mass attendance to outreach programs such as prison ministries or soup kitchen sponsorship. Activities that have a direct impact on stewardship, including community-building endeavors, financial accountability and transparency, and parish communications, are also examined.
