Giving: Stewardship of Treasure

Donation Opportunities

A good steward is a conscious steward, understanding that freely giving to God and His church is a means to provide for the parish community, assist in the daily running of the facilities and to enable the continuing outreach work done here at Notre Dame.

There are many ways in which to be a Good Steward. Besides your time and talent, you can give of your treasure through your offering. A stewardship offering is one that returns the first and best portion of our financial blessing to the Lord. The National Catholic Stewardship Council defines the ideal stewardship offering as 10% of after-tax income distributed between the parish (5%), the diocese (1%) and other charities, including special improvement funds, tuition and contributions (4%).

Upon registering, you will receive envelopes within eight weeks. In the meantime, write your name and contribution amount on a plain envelope and place it in the collection basket. Your contribution will be recorded for end-of-year tax purposes.

Volunteer

We are always seeking volunteers to assist in our many parish ministries and events. If interested contact the parish office.

Ways to Give

While your generosity is deeply appreciated in any amount and at any time, a planned giving schedule greatly enhances our Parish’s ability to budget its programs and prepare for the future. Stewardship is most effective when it follows a plan. There are several ways to give: 

  • Weekly or monthly envelope contributions.
  • E-Giving
  • Recurring monthly, quarterly, annual or other Credit Card Authorization of your Visa, MasterCard or Discover.
  • Monthly, yearly, quarterly or other Automatic Withdrawal from your checking or savings account.

Material Donations

Throughout the year, Notre Dame conducts campaigns for specific ministries, requesting items such as food, clothing, toiletries, etc. We welcome these material donations and thank you for your generosity.
