Why We Give

There’s no better investment in the world than the local parish. It is where people meet Jesus and lives are changed.

Giving Draws Us Closer to God

When you invest in what matters to God, you strengthen your relationship with Him.

Giving Grows Our Character

Giving helps us to better reflect the character of God. He has given us everything — not even withholding his own Son! God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten Son.

Giving Expresses Love For People

Our giving makes it possible for people to hear the Good News of God’s love for them. It also helps us provide, through our Ministry partners, critical care to the poor and those in need.

When you give in your place of worship as an act of worship, you are becoming more of the person God wants you to be. When you give, you are tangibly making a difference in someone’s life. Marriages are restored, lives are healed, and people meet Jesus. There’s no better investment in the world than the local parish.
