Our parish now offers Online Giving, a web-based electronic contribution application.
We are providing this service so that you have the option to manage your contributions online or with your offering envelopes. This service is safe and secure and it is convenient for you!
Online Giving is getting an update! On Wednesday morning, July 23, 2014, our Online Giving account will receive an update with improvements for our donors including an easier-to-use interface, reminders about expired credit cards, and a quicker way to donate to specific funds. Online Giving is a great way to help the administrative staff while supporting our church. Signing up is easy – you can use a computer, tablet, or smartphone.
