The Office of Development helps to support the ministries of the Diocese, parishes, schools, and other Catholic institutions by creating a comprehensive strategy of development for the financial needs of the Church in the Diocese.

The Office helps to ensure the success of The Catholic Community Annual Appeal, endowments in The Catholic Community Foundation, and capital campaigns throughout the Diocese.  In addition, the Office provides grant-writing support, planned giving advice, and counsel to parishes and individuals about their giving needs and goals.  

The Office of Development recognizes that all generosity begins with discipleship and living a life of stewardship.  Only when we understand that all we have, indeed our very lives, are a gift from the Father will we begin to offer back those gifts in gratitude to Him. 

If you have questions about the work of our Office or need development advice, please contact us at any time.
