Stewardship is:

A way of life.

A biblical mandate for all Christians.

Putting God first in my life.

Thanking God for all His blessings by sharing

my time, talent, and treasure.

A return to God that comes from my first fruits, not my surplus.

Honoring my commitment to my parish even when I am absent.

Not what the Church needs from me,

but what in gratitude I need to do to make a return to God

TO TEACH WHO CHRIST IS


We are filled with great gratitude and optimism thanks to the very generous response of St. Mary parishioners to the

To Teach Who Christ Is campaign. We have not only reached our $2.35 million goal, but we continue to rise even higher as new pledges are made!


Through 1/31/2017, $2,648,321 has been pledged by 487 families!


We are now at 113% of our original goal and new pledges are received almost every day. We will provide updates on campaign progress on a regular basis both in the Bulletin and here on the website.


We are extremely grateful to all those who have been so generous. Your sacrifices will enable us to address our obligations from the past and move boldly into the future.  We cannot say thank you enough.


We also thank the dozens of parishioners who served on the committee and worked so hard to make the campaign a success.


If you have not yet made a pledge, you may still do so. You may pick up a pledge card from the Parish Office or pledge online by clicking here.


--------------------------


St. Mary of the Annunciation is participating in To Teach Who Christ Is, a capital campaign to benefit important ministries in the Archdiocese of Chicago and in parishes, including ours. 


As part of this campaign, the Archdiocese of Chicago is offering St. Mary an incredible opportunity to pay off the debt that remains from the construction of our beautiful church, meeting rooms and offices. A major component of our total $2.35 million campaign goal is $1.2 million for our capital debt. The Archdiocese will match our debt payment on an extraordinary 3-to-1 basis! Our donations plus the Archdiocesan match will completely eliminate our $4.8 million capital debt! Removing the burden of this debt is critical to the future vitality of our parish and will enable us to invest in new initiatives to advance our mission and services.
