Home » Ways to Give » Support your parish

There’s no better investment than one made in your local parish,
where people meet Jesus and lives are changed. 
Stewardship is faith-based giving.

Based on the spiritual principles of the Old Testament and the teachings of Jesus, stewardship is a way of life — recognizing that all that we have and all that we are, are gifts from God. Through stewardship, we give back to our parish community and say to those in need among us: you are brother and sister to us; you matter and we care. Both givers’ and receivers’ lives are changed through stewardship.

May our lives reflect the generosity and love of our Lord, Jesus Christ.
