Celebrating our 175th year of serving Christ, our parish, and our community.

Maintaining a vibrant parish for the future requires the continued generosity of our parishioners. Our 2020 Stewardship Offertory Campaign theme is Building on our Faith… Believing in our Future” which exemplifies the true spirit of how deeply rooted our Catholic congregation has been in our local community. As part of our campaign we are asking our parishioners to prayerfully complete an Offertory Pledge Form.

Our 2020 Stewardship Offertory Campaign is an opportunity for each of us to prayerfully share in the gift of giving to support the continued operation of our parish, and community outreach efforts to those in need. Let us build upon the generosity of one another at St. Francis Borgia.

 

What is a Stewardship Offertory Pledge?

A pledge is a promise of your gift over a specified period of time.

Why is an Offertory Pledge Important?

It’s important, for planning purposes, to know what our financial outlook is in order to support parish operations and outreach efforts.

How will the Offertory Pledge money be used?

Offertory funds cover all parish operating expenses. Our parish staff, ministries, and campuses support all aspects of maintaining and growing our vibrant parish community including all sacraments, spiritual formation, parish activities, electronic and print communications, accounting and parishioner database.

How can I make a pledge?

You can make a pledge by completing the Offertory Pledge Form online by clicking here or filling out the paper form and delivering it to the parish office.

In what form or frequency can I make a pledge and gift?

You may make a one-time gift and/or weekly or monthly offerings. You may fulfill your pledges by credit card, ACH debits from your checking account, in cash, by check, or a Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) from a retirement account.

What if I make a pledge but later, I can’t fulfill that amount?

Historically, our parishioners fulfill over 90% of total pledges. Although you are not obligated to fulfill the pledged amount we pray that 100% of total pledges are received.

 


Make a pledge and give.

Let us build upon the generosity of one another at St. Francis Borgia. Before anyone makes a pledge and gift, please pray. Pray for all who will be blessed because of the generosity of our parish community. And, pray that all at St. Francis Borgia will discover the blessing and joy of being generous to others in need.
