The Process

Now launched, Changing Lives Together is a bold capital stewardship initiative that will fulfill a shared vision and achieve the pastoral plan objectives set by all parishes and the Archdiocese of Detroit. Parishioners will participate in this initiative by giving of their time, talent, and treasure to accomplish these goals and change lives.

The process begins for each parish by reflecting on its mission and determining its pastoral priorities. Each parish will then identify its individual needs, challenges, and opportunities. Each parish will then develop a plan to harness the human and financial resources required to accomplish its mission.

The Changing Lives Together Initiative is being conducted in five waves of individual parish campaigns. Consultants from the firm of O’Meara, Ferguson, Whelan, and Conway will provide personalized training and support for each parish. They will assist in all phases throughout the initiative to offer guidance and training to define parish objectives and manage the initiative to completion. The O’Meara Ferguson parish consultants will also help guide parish staff and volunteers in preparing attractive, appealing, and customized print and electronic communications materials that clearly, consistently, and openly present parish goals in the context of the overall initiative.


You are called to use Changing Lives Together as an opportunity to reignite your passion for God and the Church through your personal stewardship of your time, your talent, and your treasure to strengthen the faith.
