Tithing Committee

Mission Statement
  • St. Peter’s is a tithing parish community with 10% of its current income set aside for giving.
  • The purpose of the tithing committee, on behalf of the parish community is to discern the best allocation of resources towards charitable works and self-help causes to alleviate the conditions of poverty, powerlessness and injustice.
  • Causes to be considered for support can result from unsolicited requests, requests encouraged by a member of the committee, and/or the parish community.

Recipients of the parish’s tithing support can be local and/or international, and can include charity and causes for structural change through direct or indirect assistance, with an emphasis on the local community.

We are at the end of our 2016 – 2017 Fiscal Year and we have a tremendous tithing update to provide the Parish.  During the 2016 – 2017 Fiscal Year, St. Peter’s provided over $130,000.00 to deserving organizations within the Charlotte Community!
