Being our Stewardship & Development Officer
isn’t just for anyone. It’s for the professional looking for
something else, something . . . more. Remember how proud you were
when you landed that great job? Before you started watching the
clock? Sure, your work’s o.k., your colleagues are pretty nice, and
the coffee’s good. But you’re keeping your eyes on other job
opportunities. You’re still very ambitious. But you want new
energy, in yourself, your colleagues, and in your organization.
That’s great, especially if you’re an aspiring development
professional and want to radically alter the way Catholicism is
perceived and received in western Oregon. Because that’s what we’re

most meaningful work imaginable.
