‘My Gift’ to the parish
Every Christian should diligently pray and seek God’s wisdom in the matter of participating in tithing or how much to give (James 1:5). Above all, all tithes and contributions should be given with a pure motive and an attitude of worship to God and service to the Body of Christ. ‘My Gift’ to my parish is a free giving from your heart and not forced upon you.“Give and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap; for the measure you give will be the measure you get back” (Luke 6:38).
Your tithes or contributions can be a great help for the spiritual and physical progress of our Parish. My Gift contributions will be used for the formation of the people, upgrading of our Parish facilities and others. As you are aware, there are a number of programs taking place in the Parish- the Alpha, Bible Apostolate, Taize and Youth activities. The Parish fully/partially sponsors some of these programs.
