2020 Vision: Called to Holiness Capital Campaign:
Stewardship is planned, proportionate, and 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.
We are very excited to announce that we will soon begin our 2020 Vision: Called to Holiness Capital Campaign to raise money for the improvement of our parish & school facilities.
In order to accomplish this, our efforts for the next few months will be directed at implementing a smooth running 3-year campaign. To be successful, we will be asking every family associated with St. Mary's Church of Piscataway to consider making a pledge to the best of their ability.
This is OUR PARISH COMMUNITY, and we are asking for the support of all households.
Thank you so much for your support of St. Mary's Church of Piscataway!

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.
