Stewardship is a way of life for Christians, or at least it should be. For us, it is not merely the charitable giving of money, it is a part of our discipleship, a part of living our baptismal promises. To be a faithful Catholic means that we give of ourselves and our possessions, including our time and our wealth. We give not just to fill a need, but because we believe that we are called to imitate God who is the giver of all good things. We have a need to give!
The fulfillment of the mission of St. John Vianney parish depends upon the prayers, sacrifices, participation and financial support of all of its members. Our parish programs and ministries enhance the lives of thousands of people every week. It is true that it is in giving that we receive. We all have time, talent, and treasure – the question is how will we use them.
The financial support of each and every parishioner is vital in fulfilling our parish mission of bringing the love of Christ to others. All financial contributions are tax deductible. Automatic, electronic giving is easy, safe and confidential. During this transition period, new and existing donors can still safely donate through WeShare. There are options for one-time and recurring payments.

As so many of our staff, parish leaders and volunteers are flood victims or had to evacuate, we have created a Hurricane Harvey Disaster Fund in our efforts to mobilize much needed assistance in our community. Please make your donation to St. John Vianney Disaster Relief.
