Stewardship of Treasure – Commitment Card
I wish to begin by expressing my sincerest gratitude for your ongoing commitment towards making St. Gianna’s a vibrant and dynamic parish community. Our parish continues to grow into a wonderful place of diversity with tremendous inter-generational involvement – a true testimony of a contemporary community of disciples! Together, we are definitely ‘part of something great!’
That time of year is upon us once again for us to make our annual commitment of treasure in support of our parish and its ministry. Our progressive stewardship of treasure model invites us all to consider the level of our financial giving in light of our years of membership at St. Gianna’s. The principle behind this model is one of responsibility and ownership: as we grow closer to our faith community by sharing more profoundly in the mission and ministry of the parish, we increase our financial support. In this way, we ensure that we are giving proportionately, growing towards a true spirit of Christian tithing.
If you have not yet returned your commitment card, a second Stewardship of Treasure Renewal Package was sent to you. I ask that you take the time to review your annual financial support to St. Gianna’s for the daily work of our mission and ministry from January 1st to December 31st 2017. Please complete the annual commitment card by simply indicating your total yearly gift and return it via the Sunday offertory basket, the parish office or mail.
Thank you, in advance, for your response as a disciple of Jesus Christ and for your commitment to Christian tithing. May your sacrificial gift bring you a profound sense of meaning as we share in the joy of being a ‘part of something great!’
Rev. Fr. Darrin J.G. Gurr
