Compass Catholic Ministries offers a wide array of tools and resources to encourage a lifestyle of stewardship within a parish. The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops pastoral letter on stewardship, Stewardship: A Disciple’s Response, states the following: “Examples of the works, services, and ministries of the good steward enumerated in the stewardship letter include the following…Financial accountability in personal and parochial affairs.”
The Compass Catholic workshops point people to God‘s Word related to their personal financial accountability, which deals with their hearts, challenging them to submit their finances to the Lord. Our hypothesis has been proven correct time and time again: once someone realizes God owns everything and they are called to be caretakers, their financial situation improves. Increased generosity is a natural byproduct of this realization.
Catholics Parishes can more easily achieve financial stability when their parishioners are financially secure and have realized and live their role as stewards. Compass Catholic Ministries offers the following workshops to help you achieve that goal. We’re excited to offer these workshop and share these life-changing messages at your parish!

Discipleship changes everything. The Go Deep! Journey Into Discipleship workshop provides a pathway for Catholics to explore fresh perspectives on how we live our everyday life. Within this workshop, we consider what guides and influences our interactions with others, the decision making process about spending, and our attitudes about success and contentment.
Go Deep! is a three hour interactive event where we dive into the true meaning of daily discipleship. It includes an engaging “World Says vs. God Says” exchange that challenges our commonly held beliefs about worldly success and happiness. We also investigate the three S’s of discipleship: Servant Leader, Steward, and Shepherd.
One of the most misquoted verses in the Bible is 1 Timothy 6:10 (“For the love of money is the root of all evils, and some people in their desire for it have strayed from the faith and have pierced themselves with many pains.”)
Many people think the verse tells us that money is the root of all evil. Money is simply a tool, and like any other tool it can be used well or poorly. So many times our attitude toward money is where the line is drawn between what we give to God and what we hold close to our own hearts.
This three hour, thought provoking workshop challenges attendees to discern if they are following God’s ways or the secular world in their attitude about money and possessions.
Most marriage preparation programs touch briefly on finances. Yet money can be one of the leading causes of divorce. The three hour God Marriage and Money workshop specifically focuses on couples who are engaged to be married. Topics related to how the couple will handle money in their marriage are presented.
Time is allotted in the workshop for a couple to discuss several of the hot topics related to marital finances. The couple is provided with God Marriage & Money book to encourage additional discussion after the workshop. The proactive discussions help finances be a blessing in their marriage as they discover, discuss and resolve financial differences before they turn into financial problems.
We are also available for Speaking Events that can be tailored to the unique message you want delivered at your parish.
