Student Stewardship

STEP-by-STEP Student Stewardship© (SBSSS) is a ministry that was founded and homegrown at St. Patrick School. SBSSS began in 2002 as a simple concept, has grown into a full curriculum, and has spread to nearly 40 schools nationwide.

Through SBSSS, each student becomes:

  • aware of their blessings and gifts from God.
  • aware of the needs in our community.
  • engaged in serving and learning about those in need through hands-on experiences.
  • aware of how we are called by our faith to serve God and others.


  • A Stewardship Focus: a community need that the students learn about for the entire year.
  • A Stewardship Virtue: a virtue pertaining to stewardship that is woven into the stewardship learning each year.
  • Stewardship Projects: Opportunities for the students to serve face-to-face with those in need in the community.
  • Stewardship Activities: Opportunities for the students to serve others in ways that do not involve face-to-face interaction.
  • Stewardship Parents: Volunteers who implement the STEP-by-STEP Student
  • Stewardship program, both in and out of the classroom.
  • Stewardship Friday: One hour on a Friday each month in which the Stewardship Curriculum is implemented in each classroom.
  • A Stewardship Curriculum: a curriculum that consists of age-appropriate literature, scripture, media, speakers, discussion, games, research, case studies, simulations, activities, and reflection.
