Donate - Shared Cup Campaign, Annual Catholic Appeal and ParishPay

The Renovation and Improvement Campaign for St. Giles


Be Part of the 2015 Annual Catholic Appeal
“Entrusted with Responsibility”

Please spend some time reflecting on how you can be part of the Annual Catholic Appeal. Remember that the Annual Catholic Appeal is much different than a one-time special collection. It is a pledge campaign where you can make a gift payable in installments.

As you review the work enabled by your contribution to the Annual Catholic Appeal, please reflect on God’s gifts to you. He has given you all that you have. With these gifts, you are entrusted with responsibility. Your gifts to our parish, to the Archdiocese and to the work of the Church throughout the world should be given in gratitude for the continuing gifts that God gives you. Each pledge makes a difference because all parishes participate in the campaign and the gifts of many enable our Archdiocese to deliver needed ministries and services. Our combined gifts not only signify our gratitude to God, they fund a significant portion of the work of our Archdiocese.

After our parish goal is reached in cash, 100% of any additional funds come back to our parish to help to fund our needs. If you received your pledge form in the mail, please complete it and mail it back or bring it to Mass. If you need more information, please contact our Parish Office.

This year, our goal is $84,510.18! This figure is the required 6% of our offertory income from Fiscal year 2013-14. Keep in mind when parishioners’ contributions exceed the parish goal, St. Giles will receive a rebate of 100% of the funds paid over the goal. As you know, there are many places that additional monies can be used here in taking care of our parish needs.

Thank you for your prayerful consideration and generous response.

Making Saint Giles Parish the payable-on-death beneficiary of our retirement plans is like having federal, state and local goverment chip in 25%, 30% and in some cases more than 50% of our charitable planned gift to Saint Giles.
