STEWARDSHIP
COMMITMENT WEEKEND
Several weeks ago you received in the mail your contribution statement and our annual Stewardship Report, which highlights some of our accomplishments in the past year due to your financial support. Tithing a percentage of our income each month is a spiritual opportunity to show our gratitude to God for the many blessings He has given us. Our annual tithing card is a way for each of us to make a new financial commitment.

TAKE A STEP IN YOUR GIVING
Prayerfully consider your tithe before returning your commitment cards to Church February 10-18 as a sign that you are "returning to the Lord" a generous portion of what God has given to you.
For your convenience we offer an easy direct deposit option or online giving. The direct deposit form is a simple one-page sheet that can be mailed to you or go to WeShare to set up your own online account.
Extra tithing commitment cards will be available this weekend in the Gathering Space. We will turn our commitment cards in during Mass.
