St. George Parish Three Ways to Make A Contribution

“But you shall seek the place that the Lord your God will choose out of all your tribes to put his name and make his habitation there. There you shall go, and there you shall bring your burnt offerings and your sacrifices, your tithes and the contribution that you present, your vow offerings, your freewill offerings, and the firstborn of your herd and of your flock.”

Deuteronomy 12:5-6

 

Despite the fact that many people use the word “tithe” synonymously with any church-related giving, the word tithe literally means “tenth.” The tithe was an obligatory offering from the law of Moses requiring 10 percent of an Israelite’s first fruits. Because God provided the harvest, this first part was returned to Him. It was a reminder to Israel that all things we have are His. It was a show of thankfulness for His provision. It also provided for the Levitical priesthood, festivals, and the needy. While many of us are not able to provide 10% of our income to the Church, all of us are called to support the Church’s mission of proclaiming the Good News, as we are able. Your financial support is required so that we continue to have a place to gather for worship and so that those living in poverty have the basic necessities of life.

If you would like to contribute to a particular cause or should you wish to remember the parish in your will, please contact the Parish Office.

 

Time

Time is a very precious gift.  Most of us feel we do not have enough time for all the things we want to do.  Everyone is given the same amount of time:  24 hours each day, 168 hours each week.  How do we choose to use our time? 

Talent

All of us have been blessed with various talents, whether we are aware of it or not, or whether we have developed our talents or not. Of course, it is usually not possible to develop all of our talents. But, ideally, we can and should develop some of them and use them wisely to bless the communities to which we belong. How do we choose to use our talents?

To find out ways you can share your time and talent with Springbank Catholic Family of Parishes, contact our office at 519-471-4220.

Treasure

Tithing. When it comes to financial support of our church family, the biblical ideal is a tithe—or 10%—of one’s income.  Most Catholics who tithe reach this ideal gradually.  In this area of stewardship, one of the most important steps to consider is to become an ‘intentional giver’—as opposed to a ‘loose change giver.’  An intentional giver is one who has the willing diligence to ‘do the math,’ that is, to look at his/her annual income and then prayerfully and intentionally decide what percentage should be set aside for the support of the church and for charity. How do we choose to use our treasure?

All three are necessary to build and maintain Springbank Catholic Family of Parishes.
