Why I Give

Post A Comment

We give to help sustain all the good works of the Diocese; and especially to help Christ the King clergy minister to Missions they're responsible for.

We didn't have to ponder long on "why we give" . . .  we give to give back.  God has blessed us abundantly . . . with our faith, our family, our friends, and our parish community at St. Olaf's.  We are grateful to God, and we give back to God by giving to the needs of his people.  One of the best ways we have found to do this is through our donation to the Diocesan Development Drive.

When I first married in 1957, I started putting envelopes in the collection. We were financially challenged, but I always felt that if I gave what I could to our Lord, He would help me find a way to keep things paid. We both worked to support our family. We were able to put three children all the way through school (Catholic) and a 4th for 8 years. He wanted to play football, so we let him as long as he kept his grades up and went to Catechism. When the DDD came along, Jim and I felt an obligation to support those programs as well. It was our way of protecting the church and helping her grow in Utah. I still feel that obligation. Not that I am alone, God has helped me to find ways to supplement my retirement (big job for Him). God bless you and all you do.

I want to say thank you to the priests. When you give, the money seems to increase in your own income. True happiness comes from within by doing the right thing.

Our belief leads us to give what we can, when we can. We are driven through the love of Christ and the hope that our beliefs are spread through the gift of giving.
