A Christian Steward is someone one who receives God’s gifts gratefully, cherishes and tends them in a responsible and accountable manner, shares them in justice and love with others and returns them with increase to the Lord. Our generosity of Spirit, exemplified by our Stewardship offerings of Time, Talent and, Treasure, does not go unnoticed in the eyes of God.
We encourage our parishioners to participate actively and give generously in the ways that are impressed upon us by the Spirit. Here are several suggestions to guide your decision.
We are grateful for your financial support
Since religious institutions in the United States do not receive government support, funding for Holy Family parish comes exclusively – 100% – from donations. Online Giving allows you to make one-time or ongoing contributions to our parish without writing checks or using cash. You can set up automatic contributions and change the timing or the amounts of your gift at any time. Complete the initial account registration here, or download the Online Giving App for your device on the App Store (iPhone) or Google Play (Android). Thank you for your generosity!
Please prayerfully consider contributing to our parish with your financial treasure. It is the means by which we maintain our Catholic mission and our outreach to our parish and community. We have numerous ways for you to do so.
When you register as a parishioner at Holy Family, you are given the option to enroll in Online Giving or receive weekly envelopes, mailed monthly. The monthly envelope packets contain enough envelopes for weekly regular stewardship (the general fund), weekly debt reduction (Our Family, Our Faith, Our Future), monthly support for Catholic Education at Holy Family Catholic School, and monthly support for Capital Improvements. There are also envelopes for all periodic Diocesan collections and Holy Day collections. You can place your cash or check donations in these envelopes and drop them in the collection basket at Mass each weekend.
The envelopes also show us your regular attendance at Mass, which is crucial if you are asked to become a Baptismal godparent or Confirmation sponsor, or wish to be married in our church. Proof of regular Mass attendance is also helpful when enrolling children in Catholic schools.
Year-End and Special Gifts
Each year we are blessed by the generosity of parish members and families whose stewardship of treasure includes tax-deductible year-end gifts.
Donors may also choose to offer a special gift of a bequest, charitable remainder trust, securities, life insurance policy, retirement plan or annuity.
