Thank you for your consideration.  In St Paul's first letter to Timothy, he exhorts us “to do good, to be rich in good works, to be generous, ready to share, thus accumulating as treasure a good foundation for the future, so as to win the life that is true life” (6:18-19).  All of us are called as disciples to be a “living sacrifice”, a model of charity and generosity, offering ourselves and our gifts back to God through a life of service and stewardship.  The foremost way we do this is to give back to God from the gifts he himself has blessed us with.  Offerings of our time, talent, and treasure to our Church community and to our local parish is one of the simplest and most sincere ways to ensure that our life of faith, as well as our Church, is blessed with the opportunity to create an entire family of disciples.  When one is generous, the gifts that are given go a long way towards ensuring that our parish will be fruitful, faithful, and blessed this year and in the years to come.  May God bless you.
