Contributions to the annual Catholic Stewardship Appeal are restricted for use in four key areas of ministry:
forming priests and parish leaders
Central Office Priorities
The first priority of the central office administration is to support parishes and schools. Everything we do focuses on serving the people of God through our parishes.
The second role is helping parishes do the things that they can not do by themselves. Central office leaders provide resources, leadership and support to allow parishes to offer ministries they would otherwise not be able to provide because of lack of resources or expertise.
Third, the central offices exist to make sure there is a structure in place to work in areas that would otherwise be left unattended or fall through the cracks, including providing a voice for the voiceless in our society.
Lastly, the central administration of the Archdiocese provides leadership, most notably through pastoral and spiritual example and teaching of the Archbishop and Auxiliary Bishops.
