Giving Guidelines

How can I be a good steward of my treasure?

  • I acknowledge that all of my material possessions are gifts from God.
  • I understand that my offering is my “thank you” to such a generous God.
  • I give in proportion to the gifts I have received.
  • I strive to follow the Biblical tithe of 10 percent.

Why 10 Percent?

  • 5 percent to the weekly Sunday parish offertory
  • 1 percent to the annual Diocese of Orlando Catholic Appeal
  • 4 percent to other charities of your choice (including second collections, offerings for the poor, etc.)

While 10 percent is recommended, the actual amount anybody gives is left up to them. The thought is that it is the job of those who go to the church to take care of the financial needs of that particular church. Therefore, parishioners should tithe what they can afford.
