In these times of uncertainty, it may seem difficult to make any type of financial promise. But today, as always, God invites you to open wide the door and take the first step in faith.
Trust in His goodness. He will provide.
We are challenged to realize that everything around us is a gift from God. We are stewards, not owners, of all He has so generously given us. He expects us, in faith, to share a portion of what we have with His Church and with those in need.
The most important reason to give is out of gratitude for the many blessings we have been given by our generous, loving God. Sharing your monetary gifts through the stewardship of treasure enables Good Shepherd Parish to operate and provide support within our community, nationally and internationally.
Before you set up regular/automatic donations with Good Shepherd Parish, we ask you to please register with the Parish. This will allow you to receive important communications from us as well! To register, please contact Ken or Ginger Obst at 850-893-1837 or firstname.lastname@example.org
It is not so much the amount of your gift, but your intention to give that is most important. The tithe spoken of in the Bible is 10%. We ask parishioners to give 5% of their gross income to the parish, and an additional 5% to other charities (including Catholic Sharing Appeal, Catholic School tuition etc.). Spend some time prayerfully considering what your financial intentions will be for this year.
