Church of the Resurrection - Escondido, CA

Stewardship of Treasure

The Church of the Resurrection is a Total Stewardship Community and we firmly believe that everything we have belongs to God.  We embrace God’s plan for us as stewards of all God has entrusted to our care:  the poor, the lonely, the children, the elderly, the lost faithful and the physical world around us.
 
As St. Paul Says: “Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously.  Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. (2nd Corinthians 9:6-7)
 
St. Paul emphasizes that everyone must give according to what he has inwardly decided. There is a very basic need for each of us to inwardly decide and then make a commitment. This commitment helps to bind us together in Christ, and includes our resources of prayer, time, talent, and treasure.
 
Some Catholics commit to tithing. This biblical concept calls for ten percent of all we earn to be returned to the Lord. Parishioners who tithe, typically, give a portion of the tithe amount to the parish, a portion to the diocese (Annual Catholic Appeal, etc.), the Universal Church (Missions, Peter’s Pence, etc.), and a portion to the charities of their choice.



Many of our parishioners choose the convenience of Online Giving for their contributions to the parish, special collections, and the Annual Catholic Appeal. To select this method, click the 'Online Giving' button below.
