The Development Office, operating within the principles and philosophy of stewardship as a way of life, is responsible for the coordination of all fundraising, planned giving, annual diocesan appeal, capital campaigns, and gift cultivation programs within the diocese. The staff of the department works cooperatively with parishes, schools, Catholic Charities, Catholic Tuition Organization (CTO) and other entities of the diocese to create development plans that support the overall mission of the diocese and a focus on returning to God the many gifts that he has blessed us with in our lives.
