Christ Our King is a sacrificial giving parish.
Sacrificial giving is a personal matter that involves prayerful discernment. We encourage parishioners to give with gratitude in appreciation for God's abundant blessings. Parishioners are encouraged to tithe the first 10% of their household income to the parish and other worthy charities. The 10% might be divided as 5% for the parish, 4% for charities, and 1% for the Bishop’s Annual Appeal for the Catholic Diocese of Charleston.
By the same principle, the parish tithes 10% of each Sunday collection to worthy charities suggested by parishioners. On designated weekends, the parish tithe benefits special collections sponsored by the Diocese.
Suggest a Charity
Suggested charities are evaluated by the Parish Tithe Advisory Committee. Committee recommendations are presented to the pastor for approval. Charities must benefit the greater good without violating Catholic teaching.
Recipient organizations are listed in the weekly bulletin, so that parishioners may see where their support is going throughout the year.
Here is a partial listing of organizations which have received a tithe from Christ Our King:
