Your Parish Offertory
The weekly Offertory at Mass is an expression of our gratitude for the blessings that God has given us. It is also an opportunity for us to return a portion of these blessings back to God for use by His Church.
In baptism, we are called to be stewards of God’s gifts to us. Through stewardship, we look at where we place our resources, both spiritual and material, and whether or not we’re giving back what we have received.
It is through the offertory that parishes receive their primary means of financial support. This support assists parishes not only with their operational needs, but also with their maintenance and missional needs and ensures that they are reaching out to their communities as effectively as possible.
