Our 2018 Goal is $520,747.  Yes, that's an increase from past years.  The reason is two-fold:

1. Stewardship works.  Your continued contributions to the Annual Pastoral Appeal helps us keep more offertory here at home.  Because of this generosity, our Nativity family continues to accomplish many great improvements on our campus, and we continue to bless many people in our community.  The increase in offertory tithing we experienced last year was a true blessing, and proportionally that increase does raise our parish's share of the overall assessable income in our Diocese.  We are confident our parish family will keep our donation levels high and place us as leaders in our Diocese.  We remain steadfast and strong in our mission, and as our 2018 theme states, BLESSED ARE WE!

2. In 2017, Nativity had one-time insurance proceeds. You may recall, at the end of last summer that Fr. Tapp reported Nativity had recovered $125,000 from the Diocesan Insurance Trust to make Nativity whole again from the offertory theft we experienced in the prior fiscal year.  Since the stolen funds came from offertory, the insurance proceeds count as offertory, and this one-time increase in our assessment goal affects 2018.  Not to worry, we expect our overall goal will decrease proportionally in 2019, and Nativity remains in excellent financial health, with all programs, ministries, and projects moving full-steam ahead.
