Financial Stewardship


Why give? There is no better investment in the world than the local parish. It is where people meet Jesus and lives are changed!

Acts 20:35 tells us: “I have shown you in every way, by laboring like this, that you must support the weak. And remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He said, ‘It is more blessed to give then to receive.’” Our parish cannot be the hands of Jesus without financial support from every parish family.  

Just as Jesus served the poor, we as disciples of Christ are to follow His example.“Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of the Lord your God which He has given you.” (Dt. 16:17) Count your blessings, see the goodness of the Lord, and then return to God by supporting the mission of the church.
