The Office of Stewardship, Development and Communications serves as the official conduit for the dissemination of news and information from the Diocese of Rochester to the general public and news media, as well as internal communications with our parishes, clergy, affiliated agencies and employees; and as the main fundraising office of the Diocese of Rochester and the Office of the Bishop. We coordinate the annual Catholic Ministries Appeal, all diocesan-wide special fund-raising initiatives, donor relations and “The Joy of Stewardship” program for parishes.
