For its annual stewardship campaign, Mount Olivet creates a set of three pledge cards for each parishioner. Each card in the set is a different color and lists the person's name and past pledge information in each of three categories: current and benevolence, Mount Olivet Retreat Center and community concern. Parishioners complete and submit the card, retaining the detachable stub for their records.

Read below for the text of each of the cards.
