Stewardship and Development

We are called to bring the Gospel of Christ to everyone and work so that this Gospel permeates our world. Sharing the good news of the Gospel starts with each one of us right where we are in the present. Each of us is called to dedicate ourselves to the building of God’s kingdom. Because so many have responded to this call, the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend is strong and vibrant.

The work of the Secretariat of Stewardship and Development is aimed at fostering a prayerful and generous response to support the work of our Lord throughout our Diocese.
