Supporting Your Parish
St. Francis de Sales Parish, just like the first Church community in Jerusalem (Acts 2:42-47), relies on its members to support its life and work by giving of their time, energy, financial support, and prayers. There are many opportunities to use your God-given gifts and talents to further the mission of Christ here at St. Francis de Sales.
Of course, your hard-earned dollars are needed, too. Your monetary contributions are carefully overseen by the Finance Council, and it is used in many ways: meeting the church’s operating expenses, paying off our church building debt, salaries, providing Catholic education, supporting the Church’s wider mission, evangelizing, and helping others in need. To support the Church financially is to sacrifice for the mission of Jesus, but it's also our own generous response to God in thanksgiving for all the blessings given to us.
Regular giving is the best way for members to support the Church since it allows the parish to have ongoing cash flow and enables us to meet the financial needs throughout the year.
We offer three convenient ways to give financially to the parish that track your contributions. These are reported to you annually for your tax preparation."God is more glorified when we unite with our brethren and neighbors and join our offerings to theirs."
–St. Francis de Sales
