Stewardship

Parishioners are asked to support the Parish through their sharing of time, talent and treasure. It is in this way that we form a true community, and meet the needs and obligations of our Parish.

Time: Time is the first gift we offer when we come together – in worship, in outreach, and in socializing.

Talent: Each of us has talents, and together so much is accomplished through their use. From musicians to the Maintenance Committee, from teaching in the Religious Education program to arranging community-building events, we help our parish serve all who come to it.

Treasure: A gift of treasure to St. Clement Church supports the operating budget of our own faith community. The parish offertory is a first gift or tithe which goes to pay the day-to-day operating expenses of the parish. An offering is taken during each of the weekend Masses. If you would like Offertory envelopes and are not currently receiving them, please contact the Parish Office (410-686-6188).

The Archbishop’s Annual Appeal, on the other hand, is a once-a-year odscf0055pportunity for Catholics in all parishes to join together in support of the many ministries and programs of the archdiocese.

Special collections throughout the course of the year afford us the opportunity to assist special programs and needs as our interest and resources permit.

May God bless you in your generous support.
