Why we give
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.
Thank you to all who have supported the parish financially during this uncertain time. Despite the inability to gather, our parish relies on your support to continue ministry outreach and to keep up with ongoing operating costs. We are so very grateful for your generous contributions! For those who have been asking about how to donate, we would like to encourage giving using the methods outlined below. Thank you again, and may God continue to bless you!
