Stewardship of Treasure

Stewardship of Time and Talents: “Give our Lord the benefit of believing that God’s presence is leading you, and accept the anxiety of feeling yourself in suspense and incomplete." Daily quote on the Jesuit Prayer App.

Archdiocesan Called to Serve as Christ Campaign: Twenty-six have volunteered to help with the campaign. Thank you!


CALLED TO Serve as Christ Campaign:
How is this campaign different from Parish Stewardship? The Annual Catholic Appeal?
Parish Stewardship Renewal helps parishes plan its operating budget for the coming year and finances its ongoing ministries. The Annual Catholic Appeal
funds the annual, ongoing needs of the archdiocese. Both need to continue during the campaign pledge period. The Called to Serve as Christ campaign is an extraordinary effort and seek gifts beyond the Appeal and parish giving. Together, these efforts strengthen our parishes and ministries this year and for many years to come.

We still need your help – sign up to volunteer today!
If you feel called to volunteer to help our parish in this landmark effort, please contact Father Dick. To learn more about the campaign, please visit the
Called to Serve as Christ campaign website at calledtoserveaschrist.org.

 

2018 Annual Catholic Appeal:

2018 Annual Catholic Appeal Refund is now a potential $3,421. The 2017 annual appeal rebate of $1,800 is for wireless security cameras that cover parish office, church entrance, Unity Place north entrance, and north parking lot. The school office entrance will also get a camera.

2017 Annual Catholic Appeal Refund was about $1,800. With these funds, wireless security cameras will be installed throughout the parish campus. The project is scheduled for July.

2018-2019 Parish Operating Budget: 

In predicting Sunday giving, the Finance Council did wonder how the new tax law would affect charitable giving because of the doubling of the standard deductions. Fewer people will itemize because of this new standard deductions. 

Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) 

is another option for charitable giving. As provided by Archdiocesan Planned Giving Office, the RMD criteria: (1) Donor must be age 70 ½ or older; 2) Donor may transfer up to $100,000 directly from IRA to qualified charity; 3) Gift may be made at one-time, or
multiple times within a single year (as long as total does not exceed $100,000); 4) Gift may satisfy all or part of required minimum distribution (RMD); 5) Gift may be made at any
time, there is no expiration date. 

Sunday contributions using online giving 
When we do our weekly report on the Sunday gifts, it includes all mail-in bank checks, credit cards and EFT that the parish processes every 12th and 21st of the month, and online giving. Anyone can sign up for online giving by going here. You just need your parish (envelope) ID number to set up an account that you manage. Thank you to all for your stewardship of Treasure.
