In the breaking of bread and sharing of fellowship with one another, we recognize the temporal needs of our faith community. Our response is to make sure our parishes have the human and financial resources necessary to support vibrant ministry, ensuring:
- a sound physical structure
- strong and capable volunteer leadership
- outreach programs
- Christian education
- youth ministry
We also need to provide all parish staff, including clergy, with equitable and fair compensation for their work.
As committed Christians, we’re called to offer gifts that are planned, proportionate and sacrificial in support of the work of the Church. The most efficient way of offering ongoing support is through the weekly offertory.
