Financial giving is a small piece of the stewardship of our lives. As a parish, we are able to use your God-given financial gifts to support education, growth and outreach, as well the staff and buildings, which are so important to the spiritual health of our parish community.
Sacrificial Giving Supports the Day-to-Day Operations of the Parish
Sacrificial Giving is also known as ‘tithing’ and is known to some as ‘church dues’. Resurrection does not require that you pay to be a member of our parish family. However, the concept of tithing is biblical and encouraged. This financial response to Christ should be “of the essence” of our faith, not simply the leftovers. We invite you to become an active part of our sacrificial giving program. Review your personal and family financial situation. After prayer and discussion, we encourage you to commit to a percentage of your income to give to charity and in particular, Resurrection Parish.
Biblical tithing is 10% of your income. The church encourages Catholics to achieve this level of support by contributing 5% to the church and 5% to other charities. Here is a chart to help in your prayerful decision. Consider setting goals and working your way up.
Weekly Salary 10% 5% 4% 3% 2%
$200 $20 $10 $8 $6 $4
$400 $40 $20 $16 $12 $8
$600 $60 $30 $24 $18 $12
$800 $80 $40 $32 $24 $16
“In generous spirit pay homage to the LORD, be not sparing of freewill gifts. With each contribution show a cheerful countenance, and pay your tithes in a spirit of joy. Give to the Most High as he has given to you, generously, according to your means.” – Sirach 35:7-9
Planned giving helps resurrection plan for the future

Careful financial planning can be beneficial to you and your heirs and allow you to leave an enduring legacy to support Resurrection Catholic Parish for future generations.
Planned Giving Program
Resurrection Parish earns 76% of its revenue from parish support. Approximately 7% of this is from Planned Giving in the form of stocks, wills and bequests, without which Resurrection could not survive.
Leaving a Legacy
There are many ways you can leave a legacy to sustain the mission of Resurrection Catholic Parish, while at the same time providing yourself and your family with significant tax benefits. In addition to outright, tax-deductible cash gifts, there are other creative ways to give, including gifts of appreciated assets.
Memorials keep the legacy of your loved ones with the resurrection family
Memorial bricks to be included in our memorial garden around the bell tower can be engraved for yourself, children, friend, relative, or in the name of a deceased loved one. This order of memorial bricks will be placed in the garden next fall. Orders are due by July 1.
