Give liberally and be ungrudging when you do so, for on this account the Lord your God will bless you in all your work and in all that you undertake.
It takes $22,000 each week to make ends meet at our parish, and we are short on average $1,000 each week.
Our parish has grown and continues to grow. Most ministries are reporting that they have an increased membership. More people are attending Mass each Sunday and during the week. Our chapel is open 24/7. Our church facilities are full of people from morning to late in the evening every day of the week. The cost of utilities has increased. Yet our average weekly collection - our only source of income - has remained the same.
If you are making regular financial offerings, thank you tremendously! Your sacrifices are what make it possible for Christ's mission for Livermore.
50 New Givers
If St Michael’s is your home parish, please prayerfully consider your level of giving for the material needs of the church. If 50 new givers pledged to give $20 per week we would make our goal. Or 100 new givers who pledge to give $10 per week - the cost of a couple of drinks at Starbucks - we could make our goal. Visit Faith Direct to set up regular giving, or stop by the church office to request traditional mailing envelopes.
