Catholic Fundraising For Fundraisers

Posted by National Catholic Development Conference on Jul 15, 2013 4:18:07 PM

Inspired by the Gospel call to stewardship, we invite others to receive God's gifts gratefully, nurture these gifts responsibly and share these gifts justly and charitably for the sake of the realm of God.
