Lord Jesus, teach me to be generous; teach me to serve you as you deserve, to give and not to count the cost, to fight and not to heed the wounds, to toil and not to seek for rest, to labor and not to seek reward, except that of knowing that I do your will.  Amen.

- St. Ignatius Loyola

Parish Development Resources

A diocese is one family with one mission, and its unity is a gift from God. A diocese is also in a constant state of change and renewal. In order to plan for these changes and move ahead for generations to come, we help parishes develop strategies to carry out their part of the mission of the diocese.

The Department of Development provides assistance to parishes by overseeing and coordinating campaigns for capital or ministerial growth. We also support parishes in developing strategies associated with the Annual Catholic Appeal, increased weekly giving campaigns, event consultation and by providing guidance for planned giving requests/or bequests. Working together as one family we will better serve our communities.

We are here to assist the parishes with all of their fund development and annual giving needs and to help them achieve their financial goals.  Call our office to find out more about the resources we have available and how we can work together to support the mission of the diocese.
