Secretariat for Stewardship and Finance

The Secretariat for Stewardship is entrusted with responsibilities for caring for property, managing temporal matters, making resources yield as much as possible, and sharing resources with others.  The responsibilities involve a commitment to trust and accountability as defined by the USCCB Pastoral entitled Stewardship: A Disciple’s Response.  Functional areas include revenue (contributions, gifts, fundraising, etc.), budgeting (operating and programming, solvency strategies, cash management, etc.), and temporal goods (acquisition, maintenance, management, and alienation).
