Giving

Your Generosity, Our Mission.

The Gospel message invites us, as believers in Christ, to follow a different path – a road less traveled. As a people of faith and members of a parish community, we are called to live differently. As Christians, we Catholics take this road less traveled as our spiritual journey. We are called to live this journey as good Stewards, with Scripture as our guide. “Give and it shall be given to you…For the measure you measure with will be measured back to you.” Luke 6:38

At Saint Joseph’s your generosity makes all the difference in the world to our schools, religious education programs for our old and young, our food pantry and outreach to shut-ins, to name a few. By giving, we receive much more in return.

Through use of your Weekly Offertory Envelopes or giving electronically through our Faith Direct program you support all the good works in which our parish is involved. Many of our parishioners have planned ahead and made bequests or included Saint Joseph’s in their will. If you would like any help with these opportunities, please call the parish office 732-349-0018 ext. 2202 or email us at parish@stjosephtomsriver.org.
