Financial Literacy

Our Financial Literacy program provides money management classes, and educational workshop opportunities at various parishes throughout the Diocese.

Our Mission

The mission of the Financial Literacy program is to assist individuals in their efforts to build financial stability through free money management events.

The Financial Literacy ministry offers transformative services that educate the public and individuals about money management and planning. Program staff, Britepaths partners and volunteers work with groups and individuals to help better understand budgets, plan for the future, and aid in preventing financial crisis and hardship.

Pope Francis, in his First World Day of the Poor message, reminded us to “react against a culture of discard and waste” and “build relationships that are neither selfish nor possessive.” The long term goal of this program is to increase financial confidence, reduce debt and help others have a better quality of life.

These workshops are excellent for young adults, those struggling with tax debt, retirees or those on a fixed income, and managing finances due to debt or job loss. Participants engage in developing their own goals and specific plans on how to reach those goals.
