“As each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another
as good stewards of God’s varied 
grace.” — 1 Peter 4:10

As Catholics we are all stewards of our gifts from God. We strive to live out this spirituality of stewardship, inspired by the biblical practice of giving back a “tenth” of our blessings. As we consider ways to share our financial gifts, focus first on your tithe to your local parish. Catholics are encouraged to share 8% of their financial blessings as a tithe to their parish. The remaining 2% can be given in support of other charitable efforts in our diocese and around the world. We offer this page to assist parishioners with these gifts.
