Mission Statement

The Rockhampton Diocesan Development Fund exists to further the pastoral mission of the Church in the Diocese by harnessing the financial resources of the Catholic Community to provide cost-effective financial arrangements for capital works and other essential pastoral programs.


The Diocesan Development Fund Committee is a sub-committee of the Diocesan Finance Council. It is responsible for its own internal operations, reports to the Diocesan Finance Council and is accountable to the Bishop. The Development Fund Manager has the role of Executive Officer to the Committee.

The other principal functions of the Committee are:

  • To provide professional assistance to the Fund Manager in the operation of the Fund
  • To undertake regular reviews of the operational policies of the Fund
  • To act as the Approving Authority for Loan Applications within delegated approval limits and forward such recommendations to the Finance Council for ratification.
  • To advise the Bishop on the suitability and qualifications of new committee members to hold office.
