Giving

“For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also”

Matthew 6:21

“Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them….”

Romans 12:6

Gifts of Time, Talent & Treasure

Your regular financial support and gifts of talent and treasure to St. Mary’s allows us to continue our wonderful programs, activities, and ministries to our parish community, as well as many local, national and global communities.

Our $3,000 per day budgeted expenses include building and grounds maintenance, priests and administrative salaries, children and parish programming, and outreach. Without your financial and volunteer support, we would be unable to maintain our beautiful parish building and grounds, or offer the resources and programs to minister to our parishioners and those in need in the communities that we serve.

Types of Financial Giving

Financial gifts can be for:

  • Yearly Stewardship for the annual operation of St. Mary’s buildings, grounds and programming.
  • One-time donations of special gifts (such as for memorials, candles, etc.)
  • The St. Mary’s Foundation for the long-term security of our parish.

Your Yearly Stewardship and one-time special gifts may conveniently be given through either automatic payments (ACH) made directly from your checking account, our online option or Venmo at @st_marys_goc_mpls.
