Giving


TREASURE . . . The third component of a stewardship parish.

Because we have given in many different ways, including financial resources, we experience the Living God here on earth. Giving from your treasure will provide for the growth of self and church.   You may ask, “How much am I expected to give?” 

Determining the correct and fitting commitment should be a family activity; carefully considered and prayed about to determine what is appropriate. By doing so, we can truly acknowledge that we are committed to and trust in our Lord, the giver of all that is good.  

Often, in discussing stewardship, references are made to biblical tithing (giving 10% of income). In the past, it has been suggested that proportional giving could be based upon giving a percentage of the family’s taxable income to meet the growing needs of our parish. We have been challenged to increase our giving with a possible goal of setting aside:
    • 8% for St. Monica Parish
    • 1% to the Archdiocesan programs
    • 1% for other worthy charitable actions
