A "Sacrificial Gift"

How can I determine how much is a "sacrificial gift"? One way to determine a sacrificial gift is by relating your gift to your income. Some people reach into their pocket to see what is left from Saturday night. As a good steward, you are being asked to consider donating one hour (2 1/2%) or two hours (5%) of your weekly income. As circumstances change, increase gradually toward the ideal of 10% to your church and other charities. Some will be able to do more while others may need to do less. There are two important points: first is that your gift be a sacrifice and second is that you relate your donation to your income. If your income is $1000/week or $4333/month then a weekly sacrificial gift would be 2.5% = $25, 10% = $50 and 10% = $100.

CCE

CCE classes are held every Wednesday from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. in Lee Hall. Please have your children there on time. We have classes for children in grades first through high school. We are here to help you with the faith formation for your children. Children's choir practice begins at 5:30 in church.

The diocese requires all volunteers working with children or vulnerable adults to have a background check and complete the basic Ethics and Integrity course and attend an EIM refresher course every three years.
