Catholic Parishes Campaign
Called to Be Faithful Stewards: Diocese Of Evansville Catholic Parishes Campaign 2022-23
"Our work would not be possible without the generous donations made by you to the Catholic Parishes Campaign. I am grateful to you for sharing God’s blessings in support of our mission as a diocesan Church. I want you to know that we are careful stewards of your gifts and never forget from where they came.
"This report is not just a financial report, but a collection of stories telling you, our faithful donors, the impact your gifts have made to tens of thousands of members of our diocese in 2020. I have asked our directors to share with you some of the ways in which they have used your generous gifts to build God’s Kingdom, serve those in need and bring people closer to Jesus Christ." -- Bishop Siegel

God calls us to be generous with all of our gifts, including our treasure. Our faith teaches us this through the Scriptures:
“Honor the Lord with your wealth, with first fruits …” (Proverbs 3:9)
“How shall I make a return to the Lord for all the good He has done for me?” (Psalm 116:12)
In gratitude, we are called to give to God from our first fruits. That means creating a plan for giving to His Church. Throwing a last-minute donation into the collection basket time and again only leaves us frustrated. Having a plan, we can better do our part to share the gifts that God has given us.
“Whoever sows sparingly will reap sparingly and whoever sows bountifully will reap bountifully.
Each must do as already determined, without sadness or compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”
— 2 Corinthians 9:6-7
