Through stewardship we come to know and love God.  We also become aware of other people’s needs  and how to help them.  Giving of ourselves makes us more compassionate, loving,  understanding , and willing to help others.

A MESSAGE FROM THE TREASURER

The 2022 Stewardship Giving Campaign has been mailed.  Please look it over carefully and be generous with your 2022 pledge response.  In the meantime, are you wondering where you stand on fulfilling your 2021 Pledge? Contact me and I will be happy to send you an updated Giving Statement for 2021.  As we approach the end of the year, it is most important that we receive all promised pledges so that we can continue with God’s work in the church and in the world.

-Molly Reynolds, Treasurer

  • Pledging as a Joyful Practice
    Pledging as a Joyful Practice. The practice of pledging puts us in a position to be responsible stewards of the many gifts that God has bestowed on us. If you haven’t yet pledged–or if you’ve never pledged–try it!
  • How Far Out Do Franciscans Reach?
    Every year the St. Francis budget includes a line item for Outreach to be distributed by the Outreach Committee to worthy organizations on behalf of the parish.
  • More is Still Needed 
    Thanks to all who responded to the recent plea for additional pledges. The total pledges received has increased but $139,400 is still needed to provide the needed finances for the 2023 Budget.
  • Important Message about 2023 Pledges
    Over $200,000 more is needed to meet the goal!  Last year at this time we had received 95 pledges totaling $497,000.  We need much more to fund the 2023 budget and to continue the programs and ministries that Franciscans desire and enjoy. 
  • More Pledges are Needed 
    As of December 14, 71 pledges totaling $361,318 have been received. We have a long way to go to reach the goal of $600,000. Have you made your pledge yet? Would you consider increasing a pledge already submitted? The support of everyone is what allows the ministries and programs of St. Francis to continue. Please support our parish in every way that you can!
  • Stewardship
    This Sunday began our Annual Fund Drive. St. Francis Church receives no outside funding and is totally dependent on the income provided by those who pledge a dollar amount or a portion of their income to St. Francis or who are regular contributors who do not pledge.
