Stewardship


“He who goes about to reform the world must begin with himself, or he loses his labor.”

- St. Ignatius of Loyola

 

Stewardship

Stewardship invites us to contribute to our faith community in a variety of ways. We often talk about Stewardship in terms of Time (for example, our volunteer service in a parish ministry) and Treasure (the monetary contributions we make to the Parish and the Archdiocese).

This tab enables the monetary contributions you may wish to make. Your volunteer service to a parish ministry can be managed on the tab labeled “Get Involved”

 


Expanding Generosity 


St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church is filled with faithful, devoted, and generous families that have made the growth and progress of our community possible for almost 50 years. Today, we need to come forward and continue offering our support to realize our parish mission of “Welcoming everyone to proclaim and live the joy of the Gospel,” while keeping social distance for the times we are currently facing.

We invite you to continue apportioning your gifts and tithing via regular mail or dropping in the black box outside the office or, even more secure, the online giving through our web site or the new application on your smartphone.

Catholic Foundation

A parish endowment fund benefits your parish now and in the long run. In this video, Nancy D. Coveny and Juliet Greco of the Catholic Foundation, and Fr. John Kieran, a long time priest of the Archdiocese of Atlanta, explain what an endowment fund is and how it helps a parish.
