Steward of the Year 2021

August 17, 2021

The Catholic Foundation is proud to announce the 4th Annual Steward of the Year contest!

We’re in search of exceptional individuals who have demonstrated a Stewardship way of life at their parish, in ministry, or in our Catholic schools.

The Catholic Foundation invites pastors, parish administrators, diocesan ministry directors, and Catholic school principals to nominate ministers, volunteers, or educators—young and old—they believe used their gifts and talents to their fullest potential, and generously helped those in great need, during the pandemic.

The Catholic Foundation expanded the Steward of the Year nomination criteria to include seven categories inspired by holiness.

The Steward of the Year will be recognized on the Catholic Foundation’s website, social media, and during the 15th Annual Foundation of Faith Event: Ignite your Hearts on Thursday, September 23, 2021, as well as in the Rio Grande Catholic.

In addition, the Steward of the Year will receive a gift card to a restaurant, and the respective parish, ministry, or Catholic school will receive $1,000. Category winners will receive $50 each.

Please contact Stewardship Coordinator Karina Sandoval at or (915) 872-8412 for details, for nomination forms, and to submit your nomination form and photo. Click here to download the nomination form on Dropbox.

Deadline to submit nominations is September 1, 2021.
