Stewardship of Charity

 

As part of our Full Stewardship Spirituality, we will hold our annual parish Stewardship of Charity meeting on Sunday, February 9, at 12:30 pm, in the Garden Level.

Each year we designate 2% of our previous year’s collections to be given to charitable organizations. Charities eligible for nomination must serve the poor, their mission and work must be consistent with Catholic moral teaching, and they must be charities not already regularly supported by our parish (for example, through envelopes or special events). 

Thus far, we have given almost $200,000 to charities that our parishioners have chosen. Any parish member attending the event may nominate a charity (one per family). Charities nominated in previous years may be nominated again. We like to help as many as possible, so no one charity may receive more than 10% of the fund. 

Come make a difference for the charity of your choice! If you are unable to attend, ask a friend to come, nominate, and advocate for your favored charity. Please be prepared to provide the name, mailing address, email, and phone number of the charity you are nominating.
