Giving

St. Brigid Parish is supported by the many caring members who participate in and contribute to its life and well-being. Support to our Parish can be done through a number of options.

Historically, Catholics and others have practiced tithing. The concept reaches as far back as Jacob in Genesis who spoke, “and of all things that thou shalt give to me, I will offer tithes to thee.”  Tithing is the practice of giving away 10% of your income (tithe means “tenth”), usually to a charitable cause. The Catholic Church encourages members, individuals and families, to consider this giving practice.

Below are a variety of ways in which you can contribute financially to the long-term mission of our Parish. Remembering the 3-fold of “time, treasure, and talent,” please consider how you can provide support by donating funds, your time, and your skills.

Please see below for opportunities to contribute to the life of our parish.

All that is good,
all that is true,
all that is beautiful,
all that is beneficent,
be it great or small,
be it perfect or fragmentary, natural as well as supernatural, moral as well as material, comes from God
