Sharing treasure—an integral part of discipleship
As members of a faith community, we know that it takes all of us to accomplish God’s work. If we all chip in, in proportion to our resources, we can make a significant impact in the lives of others—those in our parish family, in our community, and well beyond Pacific Beach. We prayerfully and intentionally consider what we are being called to give to our Sunday offering, the annual diocesan appeal, and other worthwhile causes. Also consider enrolling in E-Giving helps our parish be better stewards of our time and resources.
Financial Report FY20
When COVID-19 first emerged, none of us could fathom how far reaching its effects would be, how long it would last, or how significantly it would impact our day-to-day lives and the life of our parish community. Who ever thought that the public celebration of Mass and other communal gatherings would be prohibited?
Although we have had to adapt to ever-changing restrictions over the last six months, we continue to live out our mission to make disciples who encounter, love, and serve Jesus, one another, and the world. And for that, we are grateful!
Our Connection to Christ small groups, young adult and youth ministries, GIFT family faith formation, and sacramental preparation groups have continued to grow in faith and fellowship virtually via Zoom. We are still providing meals and groceries to those in need. Hundreds of parishioners have received check-in calls from our outreach call team, and we continue to stay connected with our senior and homebound parishioners via phone calls and soup deliveries. Our livestream Masses and electronic communications are reaching people far beyond our parish.
None of this could happen without your financial support! We know this is a financially trying time for many. We are grateful to all who have been able to support our mission through your continued contributions to the Sunday Offering, as well as your generous sharing of time and talent in a variety of ministries, and of course, for your prayersTo see a summary Financial Report for Fiscal Year 2020 (July 1, 2019-June 30, 2020) click here.
While it takes a significant amount of money to maintain our parish, our focus is mission. We seek to create a culture of radical hospitality where people are welcomed as they are, accompanied as they journey the path of discipleship, and inspired and equipped to go and make disciples of others.
“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and decay destroy, and thieves break in and steal. But store up treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor decay destroys, nor thieves break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there also your heart will be." - Matthew 6:19-21
