Our Goal for the 2018 ABCD Campaign: $139,944.
THANK YOU to everyone who generously made a commitment to the 2018 Archbishop’s Charities and Development Drive (ABCD). To date, several of our parish families have responded. However, we need the support of all members of St. Martha Catholic Church if we are to be successful in reaching our parish goal of $139,944.
ABCD is our opportunity to unite together as one Catholic family, to answer Jesus’ call to help our brothers and sisters in their time of need- even a small gift can make a big difference. Whether your gift is $50, $365, $500 or even $1,000, it is truly impactful and appreciated.
If you have not yet responded to the 2018 ABCD, please consider making a gift—a gift from the heart—by using the pledge envelopes available in the pews or by making a gift online at www.isupportabcd.org.
Thank you for all that you do and the spirit in which you do it! God bless you!
Planned Giving and Stewardship
Charity may be a very short word, but with its tremendous meaning of pure love, it sums up man's entire relation to God and to his neighbor. -- St Aelred of Rievaulx
Read the many you can make a gift to the Archdiocese of Miami, www.adomdevelopment.org/how-to-make-agift/.
There are many ways you can give a gift to St. Martha Catholic Church, spend nothing during your lifetime, and actually provide more for your heirs.
Contact the rectory or call the Office of Planned Giving at (305) 762-1110 for information.
“Give and it shall be given to you. Good measure pressed down, shaken together, running over, will they pour into the fold of your garment. For the measure you measure with will be measured back to you.” (Luke 6:38)
