If you'd like some assistance in calculating proportional giving, here is a valuable tool. You may find it helpful in considering the financial commitment you believe is appropriate.
At St. Francis Old Catholic Church, we understand money is tight but we also believe that giving financially is a way of worship. It is giving back to God what is God's. The standard is the tithe but we also recognize that some may find a true tithe (10%) difficult we find it works well to start with a lower percentage and slowly increase the percentage until you are able to give a full tithe.
