The Catholic Foundation supports parishes with securing the resources they need through a spiritually sound program of offertory enhancement. This program fosters a culture of gratitude, reconnects the faithful with the joy of stewardship, and engages parishioners to increase their levels of time, talent, and offertory support. Parishes rely on regular offertory giving to meet daily expenses. The Catholic Foundation facilitates the Offertory Enhancement Initiative (OEI) to help parishes throughout the Diocese of Orlando secure the resources for long-term needs such as expanding their ministries and optimizing campus facilities for parishioner safety and comfort. This one-year program uses evidence-based practices and a spiritual context to increase faith-filled and joyful giving.
