How Much Should I Give?

Although everyone's contribution will be different, the Church uses the tithe (10%) as a benchmark by which all of us can gauge our gifts.

 

It is not optional to support one's parish financially; this has long been one of the six precepts of the Church. What is voluntary is how much one gives, even though the tithe is a scriptural benchmark.

 

At Holy Spirit, we have apportioned the tithe as follows:

  • 5% to the weekly offertory
  • 1% to the Archbishop's Annual Appeal
  • 4% to Faith Based Charities

For some, this goal may be hard to reach, others may decide to give more. Everyone's weekly gift should adequately reflect God's generosity.
