Stewardship and Development

The Stewardship and Development Office provides resources to those who wish to support the diocesan Church, their local churches and other Catholic causes. It also coordinates the annual God’s Gift Appeal.

"Once one chooses to become a disciple of Jesus Christ, stewardship is not an option." So asserts the book, Stewardship: A Disciple's Response, A Pastoral Letter on Stewardship, available from USCCB Publishing, the publishing arm of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.

Stewardship is an expression of discipleship that recognizes God as the source of all gifts. The Diocese of Fargo offers a variety of opportunities to become involved in this aspect of discipleship:

  • Putt 4 a Purpose: Bishop's Charity Golf Classic.
  • God's Gift Appeal - GGA numbers will be updated as soon as they become available.
  • The Catholic Development Foundation - provides a permanent way for donors to make a positive impact for years to come on the well-being of the Catholic Church and people served through its many ministries.

Who is a Christian Steward?

One who receives God's gifts gratefully, cherishes and tends them in a responsible and accountable manner, shares them in justice and love with others, and returns them with increase to the Lord.
- from Stewardship: A Disciple's Response from the National Conference of Catholic Bishops.
