"...for the praise and glory of his Name, for our good, and the good of all his Church."
It is our goal for Saint Bernadette to be a tithing parish, giving 11% of all parish income to charities and those in need. In thanks giving for God’s gifts, each household at Saint Bernadette is asked to prayerfully work toward giving a specific percentage of income based on the 10% Biblical tithe. The tithe might be apportioned as follows:
- 5% to Saint Bernadette Catholic Church
- 1% to the Arlington Diocese
- 4% to charity
Once you are a registered parishioner, you will automatically receive Offertory Envelopes. It usually takes 8-12 weeks to begin the process. You are welcome to use the “starter” envelopes given to you with your welcome packet. Your family’s parishioner number can be obtained the week after you register by calling the parish office, so that you can begin to reference it.
