Stewardship & Development Office
The Stewardship & Development Office serves the mission and vision of the Catholic Archdiocese of Omaha and its parishes by developing leadership and securing the financial resources to support, sustain and enhance archdiocesan and parish priorities.
Stewardship involves a lifelong process of study, reflection, prayer, and action. To make stewardship a way of life across the archdiocese requires a change of heart and a new understanding of what it means to follow Jesus without counting the cost.
This conversion of mind and heart will not happen overnight, but, as always, the Holy Spirit is at work in the Church today.
A comprehensive approach to stewardship education and formation is essential if parish communities truly wish to make stewardship a way of life for disciples, families, and communities.
We understand that increased offertory and fund-raising programs that bypass stewardship education and formation must be more than a “jump start” to financial giving. Such programs could separate church funding from its vital connection to Christian discipleship. The foundation of everything we take on is rooted in the mission Christ has placed before His disciples.
