Six percent of our parish income goes towards tithing …. helping the poorest of the poor.
The Social Concerns Committee makes decisions regarding this tithing based on our tithing mission statement which states:
“The tithe of St. Mary Magdalene Parish is to provide financial assistance in a compassionate manner to individuals and families in order to meet their basic needs of food, shelter, clothing and health care.”
Thank you for your generous financial support that makes this tithing possible. We welcome your suggestions and would evaluate them according to our Tithing Mission Statement.
