Tithing Fund Awareness
One way Saint Mary’s commitment to service and social justice is put into action is through our tithing fund program. Up to 10% of weekend and holy day collections are distributed each year to organizations that address problems associated with poverty, marginalization and social injustice.
Our tithing fund program has two goals: to financially support non-profit organizations that empower vulnerable people, and to build relationships between our parish and our brothers and sisters in need.
Beginning on March 6th, tithing fund organizations will be featured in Farrell Hall after the Sunday Masses. Parishioners will be available to talk about the organization they represent and how to become involved in volunteer opportunities.
The schedule of featured tithing fund organizations is as follows:
March 6 ~~ ~~ Marian Homes
March 13 ~~~~ Martha’s Table
March 20 ~~~~ The Lamb Center
March 27 ~~~~ The Centreville Labor Resource Center
April 10 ~~ ~~~ A Woman’s Choice
April 17 ~~ ~~~ TEACH
April 24~~~~~ Langley Residential Services
May 1 ~~~~~~ Community Living Alternatives
May 8 ~~~~~~ Sister Parish in El Estor, Guatemala
