At its core, tithing is an acknowledgement that the gifts or talents we have were entrusted to us by God, and are intended to be used for His glory and to spread the gospel. Tithing allows parishes to meet day-to-day needs, allocate funds for emergencies and fund future projects. It is understood, that as a community of faith, we are to provide for the needs of the Church. Fr. Hector Vega recommends that we fulfill the needs by tithing 5% of our income to the parish, 4% to charities of our choice, and 1% to the Diocese.
Listed below are tithing guidelines that may help you in deciding your recommended weekly sacrifice to the parish.
