The Office of Mission Advancement

The Office of Mission Advancement focuses on supporting parishes in four primary areas: Evangelization, Discipleship, Leadership, and Stewardship. We are guided by a multi-year comprehensive plan, with each new year opening up new initiatives for strengthening the parishes, schools, and charitable organizations within the Diocese of Phoenix.
