How might we better understand and serve our Lord throughout the Diocese as Disciples of Christ?
Imagine having a greater number of engaged parishioners who better understand the call to return and share in gratitude all of their gifts, as well as to generously share their time, talent, and treasure in service to the mission of the Church.
Here are just some of the many activities that the Catholic Community Foundation can offer in partnership with parish communities with the aim of helping God's people grow in their relationship with Jesus through the use of time, talents, and finances God has entrusted to them.

Imagine a parish community where all of the laity have discovered and are using their spiritual gifts, and direct them authentically to the heart of the Gospel. We might find that we will have parish communities guided by the Holy Spirit, living in communion, to be mysteriously fruitful (Joy of the Gospel, 130). The Offices of Stewardship and Evangelization offer Joyfully Gifted, a spiritual gifts discernment process aimed to help parishioners discover and further discern their spiritual gifts (charisms).
