Something Beautiful for God
Giving has always been a characteristic of the Christian community. We give to others because we are brothers and sisters in Christ.
We give as a response to Christ’s gift of himself to us. We feel the need to give because we have received so much.
We give because it is good to give. God has created us in such a fashion that we are most fulfilled when we give generously. It is our experience that this generosity comes back to us “one-hundredfold.”
Our financial giving is symbolic of our self-gift to the Lord and to those we love. Giving also symbolizes our place in the Church. Through baptism we become part of the Lord’s body and take our place in the Church.
Importantly, our giving helps our parish community to “breathe” so that we can carry out our mission to serve others. Our giving also helps us nurture and develop what past generations have bequeathed to us.
