Financial Stewardship & Fundraising
Christian stewardship begins with Christ’s message of love. It is our willingness to combine our efforts and to share generously our material gifts to help our parish fulfill its mission which is Christ’s mission – to teach, to draw us all into a community of faith-filled people, to serve one another, and to celebrate our faith.
We cannot do everything or help everyone, but through financial stewardship we can participate and make things happen! Through financial support to the parish we all visit the sick; we all are involved in religious education; we all counsel the bereaved; we all teach in the school; we all make the sacraments possible; we all send the parish newsletter; we all help outreach projects; we all cheer on the Bobcats; and the list goes on.
We ask you to reflect on all the gifts God has bestowed upon you, and in gratitude return some of your financial treasure to the church. Consider the suggested tithe of 5% or, if that is not possible, work to it by beginning by giving back the first hour of your workweek wage.

Walking with Jesus requires us to reach out beyond our own interests. It requires that we be prayerful in our decision making, intentional in our actions and proportionate in our giving. The term “sacrificial giving” does not simply reflect the amount given. Sacrificial gifts are prayerful, planned and proportionate, made with the complete understanding that all we have, including our financial resources, is only ours to steward for the benefit of others and to proclaim the kingdom of God. When we understand that walking with Jesus and following his example is a blessing, not a sacrifice, we will truly be joyful givers!
