Ways to Give

Stewardship

In practicing Stewardship we are called to do God’s work, to be a steward of the many gifts He has given us. Everything is a gift from God that we should receive gratefully, cherish and tend responsibly, share with others and return to God with increase. We must become stewards of His gifts to us. Your gift supports the Diocesan’s operations, ministries and programs to help our mission.

  • Annual Diocesan Appeal – Annual fund-raising drive for the Diocese of San Jose to support the myriad ministries and centralized services operated by the Diocese.
  • Estate Planning – Helps assist each parish with developing an Estate Planning Ministry and conducting annual Estate Planning Seminars
  • Stock Transfers – Donate shares of stock to the Diocese of San Jose by either stock certificates or stock transfer from broker-to-broker
  • Time Volunteer – We are called to recognize all of our gifts – talent and treasure – and then decide how best to use them for the common good and so for God’s will.

 

In a very real sense, as St. Teresa stated, we must become apostles for Christ’s message of love and sharing.

“Christ has no body now on earth but yours; no feet but yours. Yours are the eyes through which He is to go about doing good; yours are the hands with which He is to bless people now.”

St. Teresa of Avila
