In early February, Catholic Stewardship Consultants teamed up with the Diocese of Honolulu to host a two-day conference on successful parish stewardship development. Hundreds of priests, deacons, and parish leaders attended, and the conference was heralded as a rousing success.
The main presenters included Deacon Don McArdle, the CEO of our organization; Msgr. Daniel Mueggenborg from the Diocese of Tulsa; Fr. Michael Troha from the Diocese of Cleveland, and Bishop Larry Silva from the Diocese of Honolulu. Msgr. John Mbinda, the pastor of St. John the Apostle and Evangelist in Mililani, Hawaii, also gave a presentation on his parish’s extremely successful stewardship efforts in the short time that we at Catholic Stewardship Consultants have been working with them to develop stewardship during the past year.
The presentations were focused on stewardship formation, and also offered direction and practical advice on how to implement stewardship at parishes around the diocese, and we were thrilled to be able to share our message with them.
The conference was featured in a recent issue of the Hawaii Catholic Herald, the newspaper of the Diocese of Honolulu. Click here to read the article.
