Stewardship and Development Office
Everything we have, everything we are, and everything we will become is a gift from Almighty God. As stewards of those gifts, we are called to return a portion of our time, talent and treasure in gratitude for God’s great bounty. The Diocese of Austin—with its parishes, offices, agencies, schools and outreach ministries—has numerous volunteer opportunities and many avenues to give of your financial resources. To volunteer your time and talent, please contact your parish, school or agency directly.
The Stewardship and Development Office serves as a resource for parishes, schools and Catholic agencies in planning and implementing stewardship and development programs and capital and endowment campaigns.
