Annual pledges support everything we do and are at St. Mary Anne’s. Your gift is spent on all aspects of our worship, outreach, and community life.
In order to know what we can do each year, we need to receive pledge commitments on which to develop an annual budget. Decisions about spending are made by clergy and our Vestry, the church’s governing body whose membership is drawn from and elected by parishioners like you. Each fall, your parish Finance Committee prepares the operating budget for the next fiscal year; then it’s reviewed and approved by the Vestry by year end.
Operating budget income is directly funded by parishioner pledges. On Commitment Sunday, October 31, we complete our pledge cards with a dollar amount that reflects both a sacrifice and a generous and thankful spirit. We turn in those pledge cards during our Offertory. If you forget to bring your pledge card there will be some available in church.
For those of you remaining at home, you can confidentially pledge online by clicking the blue pledge button above.
At St. Mary Anne’s, every pledge, no matter what amount, makes a valued contribution to our mission and ministry. Thank you for your commitment to St. Mary Anne’s.
