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.
Many Hands. One Vision. – The Catholic Stewardship Appeal
The Catholic Stewardship Appeal, the annual fundraising campaign of the ten-county Archdiocese of Milwaukee, supports Catholic life throughout southeastern Wisconsin. The Appeal provides Catholics opportunities to support a wide range of ministries and programs that benefit more than 500,000 people each year.
Our Catholic faith calls each of us to respond to the needs of others by sharing God’s love. The Catholic Stewardship Appeal provides an important way for us to put our faith into action. It is an invitation to meet the needs of the community across the ten counties of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee. There is no better, more convenient way to participate in making lives better than through the Appeal.
Purchase pre-paid cards for retailers you frequent on a regular basis, including stores such as Sendiks, Starbucks, The Gap, Home Depot, Whole Foods, Mobil gas cards and others. We buy the cards at a bulk discount, you pay face value for each card, and the Parish receives the difference. Order forms may be found HERE and cards will be delivered to school or the Parish Office.
You can also buy your SCRIP online. Want to place an order monthly? Find that order form HERE. You may also contact Kathy Wyatt at (414) 962-5691 or firstname.lastname@example.org for information. Visit our SCRIP volunteers in the back of church after weekend Masses!
