“The only things we keep permanently are those things we give away.”
Lord, help us to be joyful givers.
What we do at St. Paul Matters!
Stewardship is much more than a few church-related activities. It’s making a choice, one small step at a time, to acknowledge our dependence on God for all we have and all we are. As a steward at St. Paul’s, we recognize that everything we have and everything we love is only on loan from God. We use our time, talent and treasure gifts from God to serve others for His Glory. It is in giving, after all, that we receive.
If you are interested in joining St. Paul’s Stewardship Council, contact Darrel Chaney at 770-715-1599 or email me at email@example.com. Also, I would like all the current members of the Stewardship Council to contact me to confirm their participation in 2016. Thanks! ~Darrel

On behalf of those who will be served by your contributions, thank you to all who have already completed their pledge payments, as well as those who are still making payments.

You can also contact Darrel Chaney at 770-715-1599 or firstname.lastname@example.org by email.
When each of our individual gifts are combined with the gifts of thousands of other parishioners throughout the archdiocese, each contributor makes a very real difference in the ability of the archdiocese to provide ministries and services. Thank you again for your support. Your Life at St. Paul’s Matters!”
Why do Retirement accounts make good gifts to the parish? IRAs, 401Ks and other retirement accounts are taxable to heirs unless the heir is a charity. Taxes on these funds can be up to 60% or more. If you name the parish endowment as the beneficiary or one of the beneficiaries on your retirement account, you will not need to pay taxes on that portion of the distribution. For more information about retirement accounts as charitable gifts, please go to the Catholic Foundation website on planned giving: www.cfngalegacy.com or contact Juliet Greco email@example.com 404-497-9440
