Stewardship Day features Louisiana development official

Spiritual emphasized


Prayer, ministry, finance and emphasizing the spiritual are making a financial difference for one Louisiana diocese.

The director of development for that diocese will talk about how that spiritual emphasis has led to a doubling of contributions to weekly parish offertory collections at Diocesan Stewardship Day Thursday, April 26, at St. Bernard Parish, Appleton.

Mark Blanchard of the Baton Rouge Diocese will give the keynote talk at the conference, scheduled from 9:15 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

The day also will feature a Stewardship panel with Blanchard; Auxiliary Bp. Robert Morneau; Cindi Brawner, diocesan director of Stewardship and Development; and Fr. Roy Geenan, Joyce Naps, Gary and Helen Crevier and Steve Figi, members of the St. Patrick Parish, Menasha, Stewardship Committee, which has spoken at the national Stewardship conference.

Blanchard has been the director of development in Baton Rouge since 1985. The diocese has mandated a Stewardship process of prayer, ministry and finances in all its 72 parishes since 1987, resulting in an increase in collections from $16 million to more than $32 million. Its effort has received international awards.

Next week's seminar is open to parish leaders, Stewardship committees and educators.

To register, or for more information, phone Brawner at (920)437-7531 or toll-free 1-877-500-3580, ext. 8173.
