Giving

“All things come of thee O Lord, and of thine own have we given thee.”

We are grateful to God for the many blessings in our lives. As expressions of our gratitude and our faith, we offer our time, talents and treasure to support the mission and ministries of St. David’s.

Being a good steward means using your gifts and resources faithfully. We encourage you to think of giving to the church as a spiritual discipline that expresses your thanksgiving for the many blessings God has given to you and deepens your relationship with God.

Weekly and Special Offerings: An alms collection is taken up during Mass each Sunday. Donations are not required but greatly appreciated as they support St. David’s ongoing ministry in our community. The undesignated offerings collected on the Second Sunday of every month, are designated by the parish as a special use for the clergy discretionary funds. These monies are set aside for the Priest or Deacon to use in support of those in need around our community and throughout the world.

Annual giving program: The pledges and gifts offered through the yearly stewardship campaigns provide the primary source of financial support for the vital programs and ministries of St. David’s.

Planned giving: As a people of resurrection hope, we do not fear death. At the same time, it is wise and holy to prepare for such a time that we leave this life for the next. With that in mind, please remember us in your Will. Jesus says in Matthew 6:21, “Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Many Christians continue to support the ministries of the church long after they have gone through Bequests, Charitable Gift Annuities, and Charitable Trust’s, as well as funerary memorial funds.

Altar Flowers: Gifts of Altar Flowers in the Church can be given in memory of someone who has died or in thanksgiving for an occasion of celebration.  Altar flower gifts are recognized in the bulletin on the Sunday of their placement and in Parish Notes.  The recommended donation for flowers is $35 and can be paid for by sending a check to the parish and filling out the memorial/ thanksgiving sheet in the Parish Hall.

Online Giving: We are not currently set up for online giving and pledging, but we hope to develop such a system in the future. In the mean-time, you are welcome to send your gifts to the parish office.
