We support the mission of the Catholic Church by providing stewardship, leadership & advancement content. We envision a Catholic community that is fully engaged in the life and mission of our Church and supported through an abundance of resources that promotes Jesus Christ in the world. Advancing Our Church will focus each season on a particular success or even a challenge in the field of Stewardship or Advancement. It is our aspiration to speak with leaders in Arch/Dioceses, parishes, Catholic schools, foundations, benefactors and many more. Guest hosts will join the show to bring their own expertise, experiences and perspectives on topics that promote the growth of the Catholic Church.
