GIVE A LITTLE MORE OF YOUR TREASURE
Treasure is the financial contribution we make to the parish to support the work of the parish and in the community. We are often asked, “who should give?” It’s not that anyone should give but that everyone should want to give. If we truly love God, His people, His church and if we truly believe in His mission, then we should all want to give something, however large or small. If we don’t, who will? Our parishioners are, after all, our only source of income. And if we aren’t giving then we are just taking and that doesn’t seem right either. So, whether we are children, students, working or retired, we should all want to give something.
You are therefore invited to make a commitment to the donation of the equivalent of 1 ‘additional’ of your income per week to support the work of the parish community. As a guideline, we recommend a minimum of 1 hour of your earnings per week – or the equivalent of 4 hours Rand value of your monthly earnings. If you don’t earn yet, perhaps a consistent percentage of your pocket money (think in terms of the value of one movie, one beer, one pizza).
