Office of Mission Advancement


To support Catholic parishes, schools, and agencies by promoting a theology of abundance, wherein God is the source of all blessings. The office emphasizes stewardship as a way of life through planning, communication, education, and development, and by utilizing data management approaches that enable archdiocesan and parish leadership to be intentional in their outreach efforts. The office provides leadership, training, and materials for stewardship discernment, the Catholic Services Appeal, planned giving, capital campaigns, and parish-level fundraising.
