Our temporal goods are a gift from God to us and therefore they should be treated with gratitude, respect and care and used with prudence in view of our mission. The administration in the congregation must bear the hallmark of a combination of trust in Divine providence, hard work, sharing, inter-dependence, justice, austerity, transparency and accountability.
Give to God what is God’s and to Caesar what is Caesar’s. Stewardship ministry is a high calling from God. Scripture repeatedly calls us ‘Stewards” of God’s grace, of life, of possessions. In this sense administration of goods is not an abstract concept but an integral part of religious life.

In matters of finance, we need to build transparency and solidarity, not just as a means of supporting the works of the congregation but as a part of the call of religious life. 

Both individual religious and communities are called to move away from individualism and focus on living in communion.

The main components of financial Management are:

Planning and budgeting

Accounting and Record keeping.

Reporting and Monitoring.
