In our experience, we have found that people relate far more readily to God’s blessings than to a parish budget. When motivated to give out of gratitude and justice, one begins to give the gift God really wants: themselves. In doing so, they experience joy. The key to a successful Offertory Enhancement Program is to tie stewardship into the liturgical celebration, to inspire people to become good stewards and to share real life examples of stewardship in action. It is important to educate parishioners that their financial support is an intentional, planned and proportionate commitment of their time, talent and treasure and is a response made in gratitude to God for what He has given to us. Giving to a parish offertory not only benefits the parishes budgetary needs, but enhances the quality of community life by enhancing Stewardship throughout parish life.
