Hi, guys —
I'm a 52-year-old woman who was raised Protestant but
am not currently attending church at all, and haven't for
years. I'm married and live in the more conservative, eastern
part of Washington State. My question is:
- What is the Catholic Church's teaching on tithing?
Brought up as a Protestant, we were pushed to give 10%
of our income, but my husband and I are currently living
off one part-time minimum wage job.
I have hesitated going to the Catholic Church, for fear
that tithing would be expected and therefore
we would not fit in.
