Cheerful Giving Please consider signing up for AUTO-GIVE
WHY SHOULD I GIVE? Sacred Heart is a great place to be. We continue to work towards making it a life-long place for people to pray, worship, learn and gather...but we can’t do it without financial support from our entire Sacred Heart family!
HOW MUCH SHOULD I GIVE? Corinthians 9:7 “Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” Your church obligations should not make you miserable, and don’t look over your shoulder to see what you think you should be giving. Give $1 or $1,000, or whatever feels comfortable. There’s no point in attending church if we use it as an opportunity to judge our neighbors for what they did or didn’t put into the collection basket. And it’s equally counterproductive to judge ourselves. If your child attends Sacred Heart School tuition-free, a suggested donation is $25/week. However, Sacred Heart will graciously accept any donation your family can give cheerfully.
WHERE DOES MY DONATION GO? Donations make up 100% of Sacred Heart’s income. Your support helps us continue programs: Sacred Heart School, Youth Ministry, music during Mass, Faith Formation programs, outreach to the poor and service projects. Your donation also goes to pay the electric bill, the heat bill and repairs and maintenance.
