The scriptures and the Church’s teachings are full of appeals of “good wealth”—how we create and acquire it, distribute it, and use and give it away.
The Holy Spirit brought with Him an abundance of specific gifts that have been given to us as unique individuals for living out our personal vocation in this life. Learn about how to discern the generous, gracious gifts that have been given to you!

As a member-owned, not for profit company, Catholic United Financial is governed by you, the member, through our Giving Network of local Parish Volunteer Teams and Councils across the Upper Midwest. Every three years, elected delegates from those bodies gather at our Triennial Conference to conduct company business, vote on policies set in our constitution, and elect candidates for leadership positions on our Board of Directors.
Member involvement is key in helping Catholic United Financial live out our mission and vision, as is the involvement of our many volunteers and Catholic leaders who connect with us to perform joyful service for those who live in and around our Catholic communities. To encourage equip all of us in that mission, we have added a leadership symposium. It’s going to be a ministry-expanding and encouraging event for all involved.
