And for All Saints:

You can affirm the unity and vitality of the Church in this time of crisis:

  • Please prayerfully consider making, renewing, or increasing your pledge to the life and ministry of this parish in the coming year;
  • If you are a pledger (or a regular non-pledge giver), and you are in the habit of making gifts during services, you can make those contributions electronically here or by mail.
  • If the current economic disruption threatens your income or livelihood, be assured that your pledge is not a debt, and that generosity can only be measured in terms of your personal circumstances. A decreased pledge does not necessarily equal decreased generosity.
  • If you are in a position to increase your pledge, doing so in a time of crisis is a powerful sign of the mutual care to which all members of the Church are called.
  • Please contact the church office (office@allsaintshoboken.comwith any questions about pledging or giving.
