Giving to Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Church
Sharing God’s Gifts
We are asked to share and use the gifts that our generous God has given to us in love and justice. The parish serves as a focal point for coming together as disciples of Jesus. As disciples of Jesus, we are called to a spirit of generosity. It is in the parish that we join with one another to celebrate faith, share in the Eucharist, and become empowered to be Eucharist (the Body of Christ) in the world. Our parish is central to our gathering for prayer and worship, celebrating the gift of each other. We have an important responsibility to Assumption parish to plan ways we can use and share our gifts here. Our gifts enable us to share the word, be nurtured by the sacraments and to build a community of faith. All that we are and have is a gift and we should return a generous portion of what God has given to us. There are many methods by which you can donate to Assumption Church.
Registered parishioners receive a packet of offering envelopes for each month. The use of offering envelopes is an easy way to contribute to Assumption Church and the various special collections. It enables us to more effectively manage parish financial resources and offers you the benefit of an accurate record of your annual giving. For your convenience, you may also arrange for online giving.
