Commit

Formation & Financial Giving

Once we Encounter Christ, we are able to Commit to Him. A desire grows in us to make time to understand Him better and to give generously.

Formation

The greatest need of our time is to clean out the enormous mass of mental and emotional rubbish that clutters our minds.
— Thomas Merton

Our lives are constantly changing; but, a disciple recognizes that fact and makes a conscious choice to learn more about the faith, to become more like Jesus, and to be a better person each and every day.

Formation helps us create intentional off ramps, Choose not to let life just happen to us, and choose to seek out growth and wisdom. Choose to know exactly who you are and who you want to be. Make a commitment to yourself by attending one of the many opportunities that St. Eugene and St. Monica offer you.


Financial Giving

Teach us to give and not to count the cost.
— St. Ignatius of Loyola

As disciples, we recognize that our money is not simply about our giving. IT is about our perspective on all of life: what are we here for, what is life all about, what makes life good, and where are we on the road to eternal life. Life does not consist of our abundance of possessions; it is about being rich towards God.

Giving has been transformed by the Gospel. Giving is a work of God's grace in us and should be voluntary and generous. Financial giving is a tremendous opportunity to receive His Grace, just like prayer or fasting or receiving the sacraments. We can never out give God. What directions can we follow for giving?

Give thoughtfully. Sit down, think about your giving and form a plan. Give regularly. For most of us, if we don't give regularly, then we won't give what we intend. Give purposefully, rather than giving simply because you know you should. Give with intent.
