Everything we have is a gift from God. As His children, we are accountable for our use of the gifts He bestows on us. In gratitude, we return to the Lord, a share of our gifts of time, talent, and treasure to further God's Kingdom. We give Him the first portion of these entrusted gifts, thus making a faith decision that responds to our Christian calling and its responsibilities. It is an act of the heart.

Offertory / Parish Tithing

We at Holy Cross believe in the theology of Stewardship through Sacrificial Giving or Tithing. Our Parish Offertory Program is the primary means of support for the parish and its programs. If we truly believe that God gives us all that we have, trust is our response. When we recognize that our real security lies in God, we can then decide what we will return to the Lord.
