How to fill an empty collection basket, and more

If you’re involved in parish development or stewardship, or Catholic philanthropy of any level, here’s a conference you need to be at, and there’s money available to send you!
It’s the International Catholic Stewardship Council, taking place in San Diego Sept. 19 to 22.
One development director says he takes away ideas worth at least $500,000 in extra revenue each year for his diocese. Those who attend say they receive the benefits and new ideas that they use in their diocesan work every year.
Even better, $250 bursaries from the Archdiocese of Vancouver are available to help you attend.
Join Archbishop J. Michael Miller who will be attending and hear our own Msgr. Gregory Smith of Christ the Redeemer Parish who will present on the topic of Stewardship and Generation X.
The early bird registration and bursary deadline is Thursday, July 15, so hurry up and get your application in!
To apply for the bursary, send an e-mail to Barbara Dowding at bdowding@rcav.org.
For more information go to www.catholicstewardship.org.
Early bird registrations can be done online here.
