Sharing Our Faith More Intentionally



Christ asks us to share our faith with others through the actions that we perform. This sharing can be with fellow parishioners, or with others that belong to other Catholic parishes and, at times, with non-Catholics. These efforts can become a form of evangelization to others, both Christian and non-Christian.

What is Tithing?
Tithing is the practice, established by God in the Old Testament, of returning 10% of your blessings to God. Originally the tithe was given to the temple or the Church in the form of produce or livestock, since this really was the only income that the people had. As our society shifted from a barter-based system of trade to a monetary exchange system, the tithe began to be paid in currency. Whether one gave monetary income or profit from the fields was really not as important as it was for the believer to understand that the tithe was what was owed to God. The tithe was not given based on the needs of the priests, of the Church or of the poor. It was given simply in recognition and gratitude for the blessings that God had bestowed on the individual. Thus, every believer had a need to tithe to God.  
O Lord, giver of life and source of freedom, I know that all I have received is from your
hand. Gracious and loving God, You call us to be stewards of Your abundance, the
caretakers of all you have entrusted to us. Help us to always use Your gifts wisely and
teach us to share them generously. Send the Holy Spirit to work through us, bringing
Your message to those we serve. May our faithful stewardship bear witness to the love
of Jesus Christ in our lives. We pray with grateful hearts, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
