Giving and Donations

Sacrificial Giving

Sacrificial Giving is a way to support our Parish by committing to recurring donations to the Parish Operations Fund and the Mortgage/Building Completion Fund.

The Parish Operations Fund, also known as the offertory collection, is used to support the ordinary operating expenses of the Parish.

The Mortgage/Building Completion Fund is used for the additonal expenses related to the completion of our Permanent Church and Parish Offices, as well as making payments on our mortgage.

Tithing

Tithing is a way to support our Parish by committing to give 8% of income to St. Thomas More and 2% to other charities of choice. The portion given to St. Thomas More is distributed to the Parish Operations Fund, the Mortgage/Building Completion Fund, Sacrament Stipends, Faith Formation, Annual Catholic Appeal, and all National Collections: Annual Lenten Collection, Peter's Pence, Missionary Cooperative Appeal, World Missions, National Needs, and Retirement Fund for Religious.
