“For it is in giving that we receive.”
St. Francis of Assisi
Through baptism, we are called to be stewards of God’s gifts to us.
Our weekly offering 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.
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.
