Online giving

The Church is one of the gifts God has given to us. As good stewards, we show our thanks for this gift by sharing a meaningful portion of our treasure. We have grateful hearts, realizing that all gifts come from God.

​Thank you for supporting our parish and its many ministries!

Online Giving FAQs

Common questions and answers about how Online Giving works:

What are the advantages of Online Giving?

It makes it easy to fulfill stewardship commitments, even when you are unable to attend church. You never have to bring cash or checks to church. Giving electronically also helps the church save money and plan its budget!

How are my contributions automatically deducted from my account?

Once you register online, the contribution amount you specify will automatically be transferred from your seelcted payment bank type to the church’s bank account.

When will my contribution be deducted from my account?

Your electronic contribution will be debited on the date you specify on the “Payments & Schedules” page of the Online Giving system.

If I do not write checks, how do I keep my checkbook balance straight?

Since your contribution is made at a pre-established time, you simply record it in your check register on the appropriate date. Electronic contributions are recorded for you on your bank statement as well as your online reports.

Without a canceled check, how can I prove I made my contribution?

Your bank statement and the Online Giving system both provide reports that document your electronic transactions.

Can I put different amounts in offerings and have all of them withdrawn at different times?

You can set up to contribute to different offerings at different times; however, you will have to set them up separately. You will receive a receipt for each one.

What if I change bank accounts?

Log in and update your account information in the "Payments and Schedules" tab. Each checking/savings/credit card can be changed using the edit button, deleted completely, or new payment source may be added.

How much does Online Giving cost?

It costs you absolutely nothing!

What if I try Online Giving and don’t like it?

You can cancel your authorization by deleting your accounts and donation dates at any time.

God calls us to nurture and develop the gifts He has given us and then generously return a portion with increase. He doesn’t want us to waste or hoard the gifts He has given us. He expects us to grow our gifts, use them wisely and be generous with them.
