What’s the Big Deal About Stewardship?

What’s the Big Deal About Stewardship?

Well, it is a big deal because this is how we support the Church. We make an annual pledge to support the Church’s programs and ministries. We do so in accordance with our means. We do so commensurate with our faith. If we believe in the work of the Church, we give. If we don’t, we don’t give, or we give nominally. We are pleased to share with you that financial Stewardship pledge income received in 2017, so far, is shaping up to be the highest in recent history. Which means the faith of our parishioners is strong, that you want to see the Cathedral strong and thriving. Hopefully, this trend continues throughout 2017. As of July 31, 299 of our 350 Stewardship units (families, for the most part), have sent in their 2017 Stewardship pledge, which totals $275, 278, so far, for the support of the Cathedral’s ministries. While this amount is essentially only about half of what it takes to keep the Cathedral operating, the level of support is promising. The average pledge amount has increased over recent years and that is a testimony to your commitment. The average pledge amount for 2016 was $845 (as compared to $782 in 2013). As of this writing, it is $921. With this level of support, it looks like we will exceed our Stewardship goal of $300,000. We thank you for your continued support, your love for the Lord and His people, and your unwavering dedication to the Annunciation Cathedral. God bless you.
