Archdiocese of Dubuque Education Fund
Over twenty-five years ago, Archbishop Daniel Kucera recognized the financial hardship being experienced by some parents in providing a Catholic Education for their children.  To help alleviate this problem the Archdiocesan Education Fund was initiated in 1984. This fund has provided over $5.8 million in assistance to Catholic Schools and Religious Education Programs throughout the Archdiocese.

Archdiocese of Dubuque Seminarian Education Fund
The Archdiocesan Seminarian Fund was created to provide a financial resource to support those men who are discerning the priesthood and receiving their educations to become priests within the Archdiocese of Dubuque. Making a contribution to the Seminarian Fund will make a permanent difference for the Catholic Church in the Archdiocese of Dubuque.

National Collection for Religious Retirement
The National Religious Retirement Office was established in 1986 and is sponsored by the Conference of Major Superiors of Men, Council of Major Superiors of Women Religious, Leadership Conference of Women Religious, and United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.

In addition to coordinating an annual appeal, the NRRO distributes funds to help religious institutes meet current and future retirement needs. The NRRO also facilitates comprehensive retirement planning by offering assessment tools, educational programming, services, and resource materials that help religious institutes evaluate and prepare for long-term needs.

Your local parish is at the heart of where you practice being a steward of the gifts God has granted you. When you participate in your parish, you help build the Kingdom of God by joining a parish organization, volunteering with ministries operated by the parish, enrolling in an educational program or giving financially to meet the needs of the parish. As you give, you join with others in your parish doing the work of the Church and ministering to those in your community and beyond. God wants each of us to do our part.

Be an active part of the faith that enriches your life each and every day. Get involved and help others build their faith while renewing yours! Stewardship is your way of showing gratitude for all God has given you.

For more information, contact your local parish to see how you can be a good steward in your community.

St. Raphael Priest Retirement Fund Society
The purpose of the St. Raphael Priest Fund Society is to:

  • Subsidize the health care costs of the active priests of the Archdiocese.
  • Pay extraordinary personal and health expenses of retired priests of the Archdiocese.Maintain the Priests Retirement Center where many of the priests no longer in active ministry live.

For many people, there has been a priest who has had some influence in their life - a memory on your wedding day, the gentle compassion shown an aging grandparent at their death, a lesson learned during years of a Catholic education or the witness of Christ at each Eucharistic celebration. Please consider a gift to the St. Raphael Priest Fund Society. Your gift could change a life - forever.

The Our Faith, Our Children, Our Future School Tuition Organization (STO) provides the gift of school choice to Iowa families. With this gift, families have the ability to choose the educational setting that best meets the needs of their children.
