Why We Give
The Rev. Wes Shields, Rector
"As the church, we have an opportunity to give thanks to that same God. We do that primarily by sharing the Good News with a broken world. That is the number one responsibility and privilege of all Christians. This is done through kindness and loving acts, but most importantly it is through sharing what God has done or is doing in our lives."
How We Are Called
Tony Tulumello, Senior Warden
"We are all aware that Stewardship is not just about money, but about giving of ourselves, our time and talents as well. We are all called to give in many ways and each of us is responsible to discover and use the special gifts God has entrusted to us. Using these gifts to benefit others and fulfill God’s mission brings much joy into our lives, and everyone can contribute in some small way."
Where Our Money Goes
Stephen Connell, Treasurer
"The first place our money goes is to provide a place for people of faith to worship in a setting which conveys the significance of our beliefs, the historic liturgical traditions of our religion.
The second use is to facilitate our efforts spread the Word of our Lord throughout the community.
The third use is to do for others less fortunate whose needs can be met through monetary assistance as well as volunteer giving of one’s time and talents."
“Honor the Lord with your wealth, with the first fruits of all your crops; then your barns will be filled to overflowing, and your vats will brim over with new wine.”
Please put aside to some time today to look through your Stewardship package. May we all come together and give generously in 2022. We need everyone’s support of St. Augustine’s this year more than ever before. May God bless you for your generosity!
