Mark your calendar: Nov. 28 We are participating in something new this year, iGiveCatholic.org.  We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for purchasing gifts for loved ones - Black Friday and Cyber Monday.  Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, November 28, 2017, individuals and organizations around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.

We know that, for Catholics, generosity and giving have a profound meaning.  As children of God, giving is the ultimate expression of mercy as we feed the hungry, clothe the naked, give shelter to the homeless and preserve our Catholic heritage for future generations.  Compelled to action by our shared faith, Catholics are energized to give back knowing that little is much when God is in it.

To celebrate our unique Catholic heritage, #iGiveCatholic is the first-ever giving day created to rally the Catholic community on #GivingTuesday, November 28th – a global day of giving. Donors make secure, tax-deductible donations to their parish, alma mater, and favorite ministries. Donations will be accepted on iGiveCatholic.org during a 24-hour period, and gifts may be scheduled in advance beginning Friday, November 10th.  Visit iGiveCatholic.org to make an advance gift in support of our St. Benedict Parish or St. Benedict Catholic School until November 28th#Giving Tuesday, is November 28!
