Read Bishop Johnston’s Diocesan Stewardship Letter

Giving is one way in which we express our gratefulness to God and provide an example of spiritual leadership.

Since 1958, the Virginia Plan has helped shape our stewardship of personal, parish, and diocesan financial resources. Each parish or mission of the Diocese expresses its grateful thanksgiving to God by returning a proportion of its income to the work of the Lord, through support of our shared mission and ministry as a Diocese. The Virginia Plan for Proportionate Giving explains the guidelines for parishes and missions.

Pledge cards must be submitted by November 30, 2016.

Please contact Julie Simonton (jsimonton@thediocese.net), officer for congregational development & stewardship, with questions about your pledge card. The Canons of the Diocese of Virginia require pledges be paid monthly. Other arrangements should be discussed with Ted Smith (tsmith@thediocese.net), treasurer.
