More and more Catholics are using the convenience of giving electronically to the parish offertory. It is easy and the best way to be consistently faithful with your generosity.
We Share – Offertory Giving
|Tithing the first fruits of your income (5% is the normal guideline for the parish portion of a 10% total tithe) is a tremendous expression of your gratitude and faithfulness to God. Tithing in a selfless spirit of love for God will bring great peace and blessing to your life. And, in turn, this giving is directly responsible for making wonderful ministry and mission possible here at Our Lady of the Angels parish.|
Catholic Faith Appeal
|Every dollar given through the CFA has a 100% direct benefit for Our Lady of the Angels parish, crediting against our assessment to the diocese and then rebated back to us once we exceed goal for our own ministry here at the parish. Giving to the CFA is a tremendous way to impact tens of thousands of lives through the work of the larger Church. Bishop Frank DeWayne shares this message: “Our Catholic Faith teaches us to recognize Christ in every person – and sometimes this is no small task. As long as we have breath within us, we are called to “do good for all,” which means seeing Christ in everyone we encounter. As members of the Church, serving Christ is a central part of our vocation to holiness.|
Throughout the Diocese of Venice in Florida, we attempt to accomplish this through the Catholic Faith Appeal. It takes all of us working together, connected to one another in Christ, to make a difference.
Catholic School Scholarship Fund
|You can make a very special gift to help a child from Our Lady of the Angels to go to a nearby Catholic elementary or high school. You may have received the gift of a Catholic education yourself, made possible by the generosity of your local parish and the awesome ministry contributions of priests and religious sisters who served in a local Catholic school where you were raised as a child.|
The cost of educating a child is now about $6,000 per year – out of the reach of many parents, especially those with multiple children. When you invest in a child’s Catholic education, you impact a child’s life for their entire lifetime. Please consider making a great gift of $500 to $2500 to help our parish sponsor one of our own children in a Catholic school.
