A Living Sacrifice: How do I donate to this?
Stewardship is planned, proportionate, sacrificial. All Christian stewards must consider prayerfully the gifts they have received from God, and they should make a decision about what will be given. As we approach the 375th anniversary of the founding of St. Mary's Piscataway parish, we have set forth goals to ensure a promising future of faith.
Donating to the "A Living Sacrifice" campaign will help with renovations to the Main Church and Our Lady's Chapel, events to commemorate the milestone anniversaries, and provide scholarships for spiritual retreats and events to those who are striving to more deeply live out Christ's call to be disciples. Thank you so much for your support of St. Mary's of Piscataway!

The Cardinal's Appeal
The Cardinal's Appeal is a campaign to raise funds that support the programs, services and ministries of our archdiocese. Specifically, this campaign supports St. Mary's School, local hospital chaplains, and Forestville Pregnancy Center. In addition, their good works extend far beyond the boundaries of our parish to those in need. Thank you for your support of the Cardinal's Appeal!
Poor Box Donations
Pope Francis said, "To live charitably means not looking out for our own interests but carrying the burden of the weakest and poorest among us."
To donate to the Poor Box, please use the envelopes labeled "Poor Box" in the gathering space of the church. Please place your envelope in the regular collection plate during Mass collections. If you would like a tax receipt at the end of the year, please include your name and address.

Leave a Legacy
Your church has been there for you throughout your lifetime. You can be there for your church’s future. Leaving a bequest in your will to the Church through your parish or school allows you to leave your legacy to an institution that has meant so much to you and thousands of others. Bequests permit you to make a gift without any loss of comfort or security during your lifetime, while allowing you to take advantage of estate tax savings. To request more information, please contact the Archdiocese of Washington Planned Giving Office.
