Growing in Relationship with Jesus
At the heart of our faith is a relationship with our Lord.  A life of faith begins in Baptism and grows as we learn about our Lord and what he teaches.

What your pastor won’t tell you about parish giving

 The average share of our income that we U.S. Catholics give to our Church (including not just weekly parish giving, but special collections and other Church-related charities) is a mere 1% – the same as it’s been as long as anyone’s been counting. That’s the lowest percentage of giving of any major religious denomination in the United States. The truth is that fewer than 1 in 3 Americans who identify themselves as Catholic attend Mass on a “regular” basis (defined as at least once a month). And of those regular attendees, only 30% give to the support of their parish. Of those, many are likely to toss the same 2 or 3 crumpled dollar bills into the collection basket as their parents did before them. And this in a time when just keeping the lights on, the boiler heated up, the organ in tune, and the parking lot free of potholes costs more than ever. Read more
