What is tithing?
The Bible speaks about tithing, which is 10%, divided as follows: 5% to Holy Spirit, 1% to the Archdiocese in the Archbishop's Annual Appeal, and 4% to your other charities. Please
consider giving as much of the 4% as you can to the Capital Campaign. Many people find it difficult to consider the possibility of giving a percentage of their income to God through
charitable giving - and cringe at the idea of giving a full 10%. But, Scripture tells us, "Where your heart is, so will be your treasure." (Mt. 6:21) So, we suggest that if you
can't bring yourself to take on the full program, you consider starting with some percentage, even 1%, and see what happens. No one can give you a mathematical formula for how
this works because it is not a mathematical issue, it is a gospel issue. St. Peter says: "As generous distributors of God's manifold grace, put your gifts at the service of one
another, each in the measure he has received."(1 Peter 4: 8-10). So, it becomes a leap of faith - and we invite you to take that leap of faith.
How do I participate? You may participate by taking stock of the many blessings God has bestowed upon you and prayerfully consider your giving level to Holy Spirit. You
