A new book about stewardship scheduled to be out next month is penned by local authors.
The book, “Making Stewardship A Way of Life” ($34.95), is a collaborative effort by Father Andrew Kemberling, V.F., pastor of St. Thomas More Parish in Centennial, and Mila Glodava, the parish’s director of stewardship and communications.
Published by Our Sunday Visitor, a Catholic publishing company, the book is being touted as the ultimate stewardship guide.
Father Andrew Kemberling led a team of experts on stewardship on a mission to promote stewardship in the Philippines. The team of experts include Mila Glodava, director of Communications and Stewardship; Phil and Irene Lindemer, members of the Stewardship Committee, and Sharon Hueckel, administrator of Our Lady of the Assumption, Claremont, California.

Father Andrew Kemberling V.F., pastor of St. Thomas More Church in Centennial, said that having Cardinal Arinze attend the conference reinforces the importance of stewardship in daily life.
"This isn't just a peripheral idea in the Church. It's a central understanding that stewardship, the Eucharist and the liturgy are tied together," Father Kemberling said. "Having Cardinal Arinze come to address the conference gives credence to the centrality and importance of stewardship in the life of an ordinary Catholic."
The Eucharist both generates and commands charity. So said Cardinal Francis Arinze, prefect of the Congregation of Divine Worship and Discipline of the Sacraments, during a conference on stewardship he keynoted in Arvada last week.
More than 150 faithful, including laity and clergy both, gathered at Spirit of Christ Church Sept. 20 to participate in the 2007 Stewardship Confe-rence, "Eucharist: Nourishment for the Christian Steward."
