Petrus Introduces the Petrus Annual Manual


Petrus Development has been working with Catholic ministries around the country since 2004 to build sustainable development programs, and we are pleased to announce that we recently served our 100th ministry. While I am proud of this good work, and know that tens of thousands of lives have been impacted by the efforts of these ministries, I can’t help but feel the same way as the priests who we serve…I know there is so much more work to be done and many more souls to be won for Christ.

It is for this reason that we have developed a brand new program specifically designed to help Catholic campus ministries launch new development efforts and get them started on a path to success and sustainability. The Petrus Annual Manual is a new initiative that provides organizations with a proven system, the educational tools to help staff understand and execute the strategies, and on-going guidance and support from professionals who have been there before. The four elements of the Petrus Annual Manual include:

  1. 12-Month Development Calendar
  2. Digital Library of over 100 How-to Guides and Sample Materials
  3. 52 Weekly Instructional Emails
  4. Weekly Phone Consultation with a Petrus Team Member

The best part of the Petrus Annual Manual is that we have created this new program in a manner specifically designed to keep costs low. All work will be done by members of your team and all guidance and coaching is conducted virtually. Your team can have access to the complete program for just $1,000 per month for the first year. Included in this cost is also an Implementation Plan which ensures that all the components necessary for success are identified and addressed from Day 1.

Your team can have access to the complete program for just $1,000 per month.

We recognize that in order to ultimately build a sustainable development program, a full-time director of development needs to be meeting and cultivating donors for major gifts, but our hope is that the Petrus Annual Manual will provide organizations with a pathway to get to that point sooner rather than later.

If your Catholic campus ministry is in a situation where you know that you need to get started or dramatically improve your development efforts, please don’t wait another year to get started.
