Promoting Christian Stewardship in the Catholic Tradition


The International Catholic Stewardship Council promotes stewardship as a way of life throughout the Church. It directly serves the stewardship and development initiatives of dioceses, parishes, professional firms, religious congregations, and Catholic associations through its seminars, publications, and the annual conference.

ICSC promotes the growing professionalism of diocesan stewardship and development programs. It fosters the development of parish-centered stewardship initiatives aimed at increasing parishioner involvement and financial resources.


Share your stewardship experience with a network of peers, discuss varied opinions, and learn from one another’s expertise.
