Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is the Stewardship Pledge Program?

Fill out a Pledge Form 2017.
Q: Why is my annual pledge important?
A: Annual pledge supports everything we do at St. Stanislaus Cathedral. It is used for maintaining parish daily operations, national and diocesan financial requirements, and continue the mission of the church.
Q: How much should I give with an annual pledge?
A: We ask each person to consider making a pledge that is both responsible and significant based on his or her financial situation. The Parish Office can provide you with assistance when making this decision.
Q: When should I pledge?
A: For 2017, we ask that pledge forms be completed and submitted by Jan 31st, 2017. All following years, pledge forms will be completed and submitted by Dec 1 of that year. Of course, new pledges are welcomed throughout the year.
Q: When do I make offerings towards my pledge?
A: Many people fulfill their pledge weekly, monthly, quarterly, or even in one payment. However, you may fulfill your pledge in as many payments as you wish throughout the year.
Q: How can I pledge when I don’t know what I can afford during the next year?
A: A pledge can be adjusted during the year if your circumstances change. We suggest that you pledge responsibly, based on your best estimate of the year’s income.
Q: How does St. Stanislaus Cathedral spend the money we give?
A: Saint Stanislaus Cathedral has ongoing expenses to maintain daily operations at the church. These expenses are labelled as cost centers. Details about these cost centers can be inquired through the Parish Office. A portion of your Stewardship Pledge goes to the funding to cover these expenses. Additionally, the parish is a center for spirituality. Developing a strong spiritual element in our parish also requires funding which will be driven by the member’s Stewardship Pledge.
