Stewardship Day features workshops and discussions that will help attendees to become better "stewards" of the Catholic Church. Stewardship is defined as the realization that everything we have -- spiritual, physical and temporal -- is a gift from God. The day will be highlighted by a talk delivered by Bishop Vincent de Paul Breen, of the Diocese of Metuchen, New Jersey. One of his first acts as Bishop was to declare Metuchen a "stewardship diocese."

Other speakers will include former Philadelphia Eagle linebacker Kevin Reilly, who will tell the inspirational story of how he has shared his gifts since his football career was ended by the amputation of his left arm.

The day long event will culminate in a special Mass, with Anthony Cardinal Bevilacqua, Archbishop of Philadelphia, presiding.


Editor's Note: Reporters and camera crews wishing to cover this event are advised to arrive at 10:00 a.m., when Bishop Breen will deliver his talk. Kevin Reilly will speak at 12:55 p.m.
