The Diocese of St. Petersburg announced on November 28th that Meegan Wright has been appointed to serve as Executive Director of the Catholic Foundation.

These new responsibilities will be in addition to Meegan’s current role as Executive Director of the Office of Stewardship and Development, which oversees the Annual Pastoral Appeal and various campaigns and collections which fund the ministries of the Diocese of St. Petersburg and help parishes to thrive.

Meegan recently served in two major leadership positions in the Diocese, serving as co-chair of the Family Faith Fest Planning Committee and member of the Visioning Team that developed Courageously Living the Gospel.

“I have had the honor of working with Meegan over the past four years and I am confident that she will bring new energy, ideas and enthusiasm to the Foundation and our faith-filled mission,” said Frank Murphy, Secretary for Administration.

Meegan started full-time employment with the Diocese of St. Petersburg in 2014 but she has worked for the past 20 years in Catholic stewardship and development in dioceses across the United States. She is a lifelong Catholic and has been a parishioner of the Cathedral of St. Jude for 10 years. She is a graduate of Florida State University.

The Catholic Foundation supports the work of Christ in the Diocese of St. Petersburg by securing gifts, providing donor services and managing financial resources to benefit people assisted by all parish and Diocesan ministries.
