Why We Exist


The Catholic Church is in need of the next generation of leaders. As our society becomes increasingly secular and aggressive in its rejection of Christ and his followers, it is critical that young men and women of the Church take up the charge to carry the light of truth out into the world. These young men and women must receive training, support and grounding in their faith from active and vibrant communities and ministries. One common theme that permeates most Catholic ministries that serve young men and women is inadequate funding with which they can offer these programs, as well as limited understanding for how to create a plan for sustainable revenue. Petrus Development is committed to helping organizations implement the right strategies to raise more money and offer more ministry.

Warm Gratitude for Our Work Together

I just wanted to express my warm gratitude for our work together which has made such an impact on me and on St. Albert the Great University Parish. Four years ago, as I started this assignment, I could not have imagined being where we are today. In just a little more than 2 years since hiring Petrus and hiring a full-time development director, we’ve seen very substantial growth in overall giving, total donors, and total number of gifts. We have built relationships with a new Advisory Council and hundreds of alumni, parents and other supporters. We’re now in the planning phase of a capital campaign and I see a lot of opportunity in the coming years.

Working the Plan is Producing Results

I am grateful to everyone from Petrus that I’ve had the pleasure to work with. Our first Leadership Council meeting this spring took some work but turned out to be a great success. Also, we raised $13,000 from our Senior Gift program and almost $12,000 from our matching funds weekend in April. We are working the plan and will continue to get better! Thank you for the work you do helping to keep young college kids fruitful and Catholic.
