Stewardship and Development

The Office of Stewardship and Development promotes the mission of the diocese by educating diocesan members to respond to the call of discipleship through stewardship of time, talent, and treasure.

Stewardship is a total way of life. It is not a program, but a spiritual consciousness based in Scripture, which holds that all we are and all we have flows from God’s varied grace. In turn, we serve as spiritual caretakers of our spiritual and worldly blessings, responding to the Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy.

Development is the strategy within this spiritual relationship, that allows Catholic parishes and institutions to attain their goals through a means of conversion, visioning, planning, public relations, and charitable giving concepts.
