DID YOU KNOW GIVING IS AN ACT OF WORSHIP? WHEN YOU GIVE, YOU ARE MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN SOMEONE'S LIFE. MARRIAGES ARE RESTORED, LIVES ARE HEALED, AND PEOPLE COME TO KNOW JESUS CHRIST - THE GIVER OF LIFE. THERE IS NO BETTER INVESTMENT IN THE WORLD THAN INVESTING IN YOUR HOME PARISH.

How do you give of your TIME?

How do you give of your TALENT?

How do you give of your TREASURE?

 

time

Time is a very precious gift. Most of us feel we don’t have enough time for all the things we want to do. Everyone is given the same amount of time: 24 hours each day, 168 hours each week. The question is: How do we choose to use our time? 

talent

We have all been blessed with various talents, whether we are aware of it or not, or whether we have developed our talents or not. Ideally, we can and should develop some of them and use them wisely to bless and enhance the Catholic communities we belong to. 

treasure

There are over 2,300 verses in the Bible about money, possessions and the right use of them. Why is this? Perhaps because God knows our propensity to misuse money or allow it to distract us from keeping our eyes on him. When it comes to financial support of our church family our Bishop requests sharing 10% to your parish. Most Catholics who tithe reach this ideal gradually. In this area of stewardship, one of the most important steps to consider is to become an ‘intentional giver’—as opposed to a ‘loose change giver.’ An intentional giver is one who has the willing diligence to ‘do the math,’ that is, to look at his/her annual income and then prayerfully and intentionally decide what percentage should be set aside for the support of the church and for charity. To help and encourage ‘intentional giving’ our parish offers different ways to give.
