Everything we are and everything we have are gifts, freely given by a God who loves us. Whatever we think we “own” is really “on loan” from God. We are indeed a blessed people. As God blesses us, we are asked to give thanks through the return of some portion of these gifts for use in God’s work here on earth.
By supporting the parish community financially, we nourish our need to give back for all that God has given to us. There are many ways to give in gratitude for the gifts we have received.
