Giving Tuesday is November 30

Giving Tuesday is November 30th this year, the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. Since 2012, this “holiday” has been designed to encourage people to reach outside of themselves and donate time or money to their favorite charity or organization. This is the first time we have reached out to our congregation for Giving Tuesday, and we are asking for help on a very particular need. At St. Barnabas, we have eight Diocesan Collections during the year. For most of those collections, we just send on to the Diocese whatever money we collect. But for two of the collections, we are actually assessed an amount by the Diocese that we are required to send in, even if we have to take the money out of our operating budget to meet it. These two collections are the Diocesan Services Appeal (or DSA) and Priests’ Retirement. We are short of meeting both of those assessments this year, and are hoping that through a special Giving Tuesday collection, we will be able to make up the difference.
