Archdiocese’s development director to take position at University of Minnesota

Michael Halloran, director of development and stewardship for the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis, has accepted a position as assistant athletics director of development for intercollegiate athletics at the University of Minnesota, effective April 30.

Halloran joined the archdiocese in 2010 after serving as the executive director of the Catholic Foundation for the Diocese of Sacramento, Calif. Prior to that, he worked for seven years at the University of Minnesota in a similar development role.

“This is a unique opportunity to return to the University of Minnesota during a very exciting time,” Halloran said. “I am grateful to Archbishop Nienstedt for providing me the opportunity to serve the local Church in this way for the last three years. I look forward to continuing to serve the Church I love so much as a parish volunteer and Catholic school parent.”

Archbishop John Nienstedt said, “Mike has been an outstanding member of our leadership team here at the archdiocese and he will certainly be missed. He will do a great job for the University of Minnesota.”

The archdiocese announced it has begun a search process and expects to hire a replacement for Halloran by the end of May or early June. In the interim, the associate director of development and stewardship, Chuck Waletzko, will lead general operations for stewardship and the annual Catholic Services Appeal.

In addition, the archdiocese said an interim resourcing plan has been put in place to provide support for the feasibility study phase currently under way for a potential capital campaign.
