Welcome to the home page for the Stewardship Office of the Archdiocese of Atlanta!
Christian stewardship is one of the fruits of discipleship. A Christian disciple makes a mature choice to accept Jesus’ call without counting the cost, and stewardship is an outward expression of such a choice. In responding wholeheartedly to the Lord’s invitation, the mature disciple recognizes God’s gifts, strives to take care of them, and shares them out of love for God and neighbor.
The Stewardship Office fulfills its mission by encouraging and supporting the effective stewardship of time, talent, and treasure for Catholics in north and central Georgia. Our Stewardship Office also serves the parishes, agencies, and ministries of the archdiocese in their fund development efforts.
Our services include:
- Stewardship education and support
- Administration of the Archbishop’s Annual Appeal
- Capital campaign resourcing support
- Grant writing and other ad hoc funding efforts
The work of the Stewardship Office therefore reflects both the theology of stewardship as a way of life and the sober recognition that fund development is a ministry that helps fulfill the Church’s mission to “go and make disciples of all nations (Mt 28:19).”
Please call on us if you need support or assistance. We are here to serve.
Executive Director of Stewardship
“Stewardship is an expression of Christian discipleship with the power to change how we understand and live out our lives. Disciples who practice stewardship recognize God as the origin of life, the giver of freedom, the source of all they have and are and will be.”
