“The Church – I repeat once again – is not a relief organization, an enterprise or an NGO (non-government organization), but a community of people, animated by the Holy Spirit, who have lived and are living the wonder of the encounter with Jesus Christ and want to share this experience of deep joy, the message of salvation that the Lord gave us.”
Pope Francis, Message for World Youth Day 2013 at 4, May 19, 2013.
Why give? There is no better investment in the world than the local parish. It is where people meet Jesus and lives are changed!
Acts 20:35 tells us: “I have shown you in every way, by laboring like this, that you must support the weak. And remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He said, ‘It is more blessed to give then to receive.’” Our parish cannot be the hands of Jesus without financial support from every parish family.
Just as Jesus served the poor, we as disciples of Christ are to follow His example “Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of the Lord your God which He has given you.” (Dt. 16:17) Count your blessings, see the goodness of the Lord, and then return to God by supporting the mission of St. Thomas Aquinas parish.

"Give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you."
