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.
Where the money goes—from maintenance to mission
Your financial stewardship helps maintain and improve parish property, pay the utility and insurance bills, and purchase office supplies and equipment. Some extraordinary expenses for the last fiscal year included: church roof replacement, new heaters for the Ministry Center, John Paul II, and Bay Room, plumbing repairs in front of church and in the Parish Offices, stained glass window repair deposit, new floor cleaning machine, resurfacing the parking lots, and professional services for a sustainable offertory program.

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
