Happy Retirement!

IMG_7788If you’ve called the Archdiocese of Cincinnati Stewardship Department in the last few years with questions about your donation to the 1 Faith, 1 Hope, 1 Love campaign, you may have talked to Nancy Dragan. And if you have left a voicemail for the department, she has more than likely promptly returned your call. In fact, she’s returned more than 4,600 phone calls about donations since January of 2016. And she’ll make her final phone calls, on Friday, June 1, 2018, when she retires from the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.

Ms. Dragan has worked extensively on the 1 Faith, 1 Hope, 1 Love campaign from its inception. She’s patiently helped thousands of donors over the years. And that hasn’t always meant assisting with people’s financial donations, but also answering simple questions, taking time to listen to some long-winded callers and at times offering prayers for those who call. And it’s obvious that her patience stems from her faith and is an important part of the work that she is doing. “I thank God every morning for the blessings I cannot see. Those are the most important. I don’t think people have a full understanding of what all the [1 Faith, 1 Hope, 1 Love] campaign is doing for people, but those are the blessings that you can’t always see,” said Ms. Dragan.

In addition to Ms. Dragan’s patience and faith that are the foundation of her work, her role as Campaign Assistant, also provides a sentimental connection to her father. In the 1950s, Ms. Dragan’s father, Paul Rauf, volunteered for the Archdiocese of Cincinnati’s capital campaign to raise money to build several high schools in the archdiocese.  He walked door to door asking for donations to the campaign. “I just find that to be kind of odd that my dad did that so many years ago and then here’s his daughter, a grown woman with a family, and I end up working on the historical campaign,” said Ms. Dragan.

 

Congratulations on your retirement Nancy from all of us at the Archdiocese of Cincinnati!

One Faith, One Hope, One Love Campaign

We Are Investing in Five Priorities to Carry Out the Work of The Church:

Caring for Retired Diocesan Priests
Download this Brochure

Our archdiocese is in the midst of advancing our promising opportunities and addressing our pressing needs. At this moment in our history, sustaining and growing our diocesan ministries requires attention to several key priorities. We must foster strong parish communities, the driving force of our call to be Christ's presence in the world. We must ensure the continued availability and strength of our Catholic schools. We cannot forsake our brothers and sisters in need. We must continue to welcome and foster the rising numbers of priestly vocations God is sending us, while we provide for our retired priests in gratitude for their lives of dedicated service.

Based upon the positive results of a professional planning and feasibility study conducted in 2013, our archdiocese is moving forward with a comprehensive campaign, One Faith, One Hope, One Love. This campaign will transform our communities of faith; strengthen the Catholic presence in our communities; and give our parishes, schools, and other ministries a solid foundation upon which they can prepare for the future. We are united in this commitment with our shepherd, Archbishop Dennis Schnurr, our Auxiliary Bishop Joe Binzer, our diocesan and religious priests, religious sisters and brothers, permanent deacons, lay ministers, and volunteers. One Faith, One Hope, One Love provides a historic opportunity for all of us to work together to realize our vision for a vibrant Catholic Church in our archdiocese.

Letter from the Archbishop

My Dear Friends in Christ,

St. Peter, our first Pope, took care to impress upon us that we are charged individually, as well as collectively, with the responsibility of stewardship. In 1 Peter, Chapter 4, he teaches "as each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God's varied grace."
