To: Priests
From: Nancy Stoehr, Coordinator of Stewardship and Development, Office of Stewardship

The Office of Stewardship and the Catholic Foundation of North Georgia are again pleased to offer eight $1,250 scholarships to priests wishing to attend one of two valuable conferences. Please see below for more information.

Amazing Parish: October 17 – 19, 2018
The Amazing Parish conference is a practical and one-of-a-kind experience for parish leaders. You’ll receive first-hand organizational training from New York Times best-selling author, Patrick Lencioni, and other engaging Catholic leaders. The Amazing Parish conference is a workshop-style format so pastors and parish leadership team members can work side-by-side to learn what a real leadership team looks like, how it operates and how it can best serve its parishioners.

If you choose the Amazing Parish conference, the $1,250 scholarship will go toward the $1,500 cost of registering your parish team. This fee covers the pastor and 4 members of his leadership team.

International Catholic Stewardship Conference: October 28 – 31, 2018
The theme for this year’s ICSC Conference, which will be held in Nashville, is Missionary Disciples: Stewards of the Gospel. Discover how stewardship can transform your parish. The conference offers tracks for those new to stewardship and for those who want to reinvigorate their parish stewardship efforts. There is a track which presents the practical tools of stewardship and a track specifically for parish business managers. One track is offered completely in Spanish.

If you choose the ICSC conference, the $1,250 will cover your conference registration fee plus your hotel costs.

Please note that the form must be postmarked or emailed by June 8, 2018. If you are interested in applying for this scholarship, please complete and submit ONE of the attached Scholarship Request Forms. The Pastors Advisory Council of the Catholic Foundation of North Georgia will select the scholarship recipients and you’ll be notified of the award in July.
