“All must give as they are able, according to the blessings given to them by the Lord our God.”
A message from Fr. Roman,
We are all members of the Body of Christ and are called to build the community that Jesus established, a community in which all of us choose to take responsibility for the spiritual and fiscal health of our community. We are faithfully committed to sharing the good news of God’s love for all people by loving each other and welcoming everyone who visits. Our community’s primary focus is the full, active and conscious participation in Sunday Mass and other opportunities for communal prayer. An important element of Sunday Mass is offering thanks to God for all the blessings we enjoy because of God’s generosity. One way to offer thanks is in supporting our various ministries and organizations which flow out of our prayer together. Our generous gifts of time, talent, and treasure to our parish community fulfill Pope Francis’ call that we all serve in love while bringing joy to ourselves and others.
Here are some ways we can financially support the development of our community as faithful caretakers of God’s gifts.
Electronic Giving – For your convenience, Divine Savior parish offers the opportunity to contribute to the Church by using a credit card. This method allows flexibility regarding the frequency of giving, whether that be weekly, monthly or annual donations. These options are safe, secure and convenient and can be easily set up here on our website.
Weekly Envelopes – Envelopes are mailed every other month to every registered household in the parish that has requested this method. Included in these packets is an envelope for weekly offering to the parish, for Holy Days as well as envelopes by which we can support the parish Building Fund, our St. Vincent de Paul Society and supplies for our church environment.
Gifts of Stock and Securities – Divine Savior parish accepts donations of appreciated stocks and securities. This method of giving provides a tax benefit in the deferral of capital gains. Stock donations are coordinated by contacting Katie at the parish office.
Remember Divine Savior parish in your Will or Estate Planning or as a beneficiary on your life insurance policy – Please contact the parish office to obtain appropriate information. With that information, the next steps typically include consulting an attorney and/or tax professionals. Using this method, Divine Savior is listed as a beneficiary for whatever amount or percentage of the estate is to be donated to the parish.
