Some Basics of Catholic Life

The Financial Support of the Church

There is a serious obligation to support the work and mission of the Church through our giving. What we give to the Church is part and parcel of our giving to God. It should, therefore, be something which bears a real relationship to our income as well as to our essential financial commitments. Above all, it should be something which is thought out before we come to Mass. To give one's 'spare change' on the spur of the moment is not fulfilling the obligation of giving in a thought-out and sacrifical way.
