The Diocesan Fiscal Office is entrusted with responsibilities for caring for property, managing temporal matter, making resources yield as much as possible, and sharing resources with others. The responsibilities involve a commitment to trust and accountability as defined by the USCCB Pastoral entitled Stewardship: A Disciple's Response. Functional areas include revenue (contributions, gifts, fundraising, etc.), budgeting (operating and programming, solvency strategies, cash management, etc.) and temporal goods (acquisition, maintenance, management, and alienation).
