It’s 8:30am. The Parish Giving office phone rings. The person on the other end of the phone expects an automated machine directory telling them to press 1 for Person A, or press 2 for Person B. Instead, they are greeted by a friendly voice saying, “Parish Giving”. The caller shocked and surprised as the receptionist repeats, “This is Parish Giving”. Now the person on the end of the phone feels at ease and asks to speak to someone about their account. Real people talking to real people; a concept we believe in here at Parish Giving that sets us apart from others.
When you see the name Parish Giving, you automatically think all we are about is your weekly offering toward your parish. Well here is a surprise – it is so much more than that! Parish Giving is about giving back to your community and to your parish. Your weekly church offering is just skimming the surface of what we are about!
On the eve of Catholic School Week 2018, it is important for us to know why we have one. Each year, the last Sunday in January commences Catholic School Week. For those who received a Catholic school education know that it is about more than just uniforms and religious education classes; it’s about the Mind, Heart and Spirit.
