Stewardship may be summed up as everything we do after we say, "We believe in God."  As Christians, we acknowledge that all of our blessings, including our very lives, are divine gifts.  Each of us must grab hold of the exhilarating truth that all we are and all we have are gifts from God.  Our culture says we must earn everything, while the Bible tells us we can’t.  God’s love is freely given.  Jesus shows us that the way to life abundant is through the practices of prayer, forgiveness, giving, and unconditional positive regard and respect to all. 

Stewardship at All Hallows Parish incorporates all that we share in our life as a Christian community and parish family.  It depends upon the contributions of all our members, including active participation in the ministries of your choice and your financial support.  Parishioners can make a pledge anytime for the remainder of the current calendar year.  During the fall season, we ask for all parishioners to pledge their financial support for the coming year by completing a Pledge Form and dropping it into offering plate during Mass or mailing it to 3600 Solomon's Island Rd, Edgewater, MD 21037. 

Pledge forms are also available at the Chapel and in the Parish Office on the Brick Church Campus.

Your commitment and involvement will enable our fulfillment of God's purposes for our life together as the All Hallows' Parish Family.

Thanks for your support.

Some frequently asked questions regarding yearly pledges:

Q: I give in the offering plate during Mass, why do I need to pledge?
A: Funds collected in the offering plate each week do significantly support All Hallow's life and mission, and are greatly appreciated.  However, pledges are critical because they enable our Vestry, the parish’s governing board, to plan responsibly and to establish a parish operating budget for the coming year.  We also believe pledging is an important Christian spiritual practice, enabling us to grow intentionally in gratitude and generosity in every part of our lives.

Q: What happens to the money I give?
A: Your pledge supports All Hallows' worship, pastoral care, education programs, our social-outreach programs, maintenance of our beloved buildings and cemeteries, and more.  Additionally, a portion of your pledge supports the Episcopal Diocese of Maryland and national church.

Q: What if I'm unable to give the amount I pledged? 
A:  Your pledge is not legally binding.  If your circumstances change, simply notify our Parish Office that you need to change your pledge.  If you're blessed with unexpected extra income, you're always welcome to increase your pledge as well!

Q:  Who knows how much I pledge?
A:  All Hallows keeps all pledges confidential.  Access to pledge records are limited to our Rector, Treasurer, Stewardship Chairperson, and our Parish Administrator.  The Stewardship Chairperson shares with Stewardship Committee members a follow-up list to contact parishioners encouraging them to pledge.  However, the dollar amount of pledge history is not distributed among the Stewardship Committee or the Vestry members.  We encourage (not required) parishioners to allow their names to be released for church stewardship communication purposes (i.e. thank you announcements listing names of supporters), but All Hallows would never share dollar amounts of individual pledges.

Q: Can I pay in installments throughout the year?
A: You may fulfill your pledge in as many payments as you wish throughout the year -- weekly, monthly, quarterly, or periodically.  All Hallows offers booklets of  pledge envelopes you may use to pay with cash or check in the Sunday offering plate.  If you would like weekly offering envelopes, contact the Parish Office and we will deliver envelopes to you as soon as possible.  We also encourage parishioners to set-up automatic periodic payments from their banking institutions.

Q: Can I pay by credit card? 
A: Yes, please click on the donate button at the top of the page.
