A message from our treasurer, Lee:
As we all know, the costs of keeping the parish going continue despite the fact that we cannot physically be present on Sundays and other days.
I am always awed by the faithful generosity of our community, and trust that faithful giving will continue through the social distancing and sheltering in place we are experiencing in these challenging days.
You may mail your gifts by check to the church, as Claudia and I are there as needed (keeping safe), and can make deposits safely. Or you may use the online giving options on our parish website. If you can find the “give” tab, you will see two options:
- “Donate by electronic check”, which will transfer funds directly from your bank account to the church’s account; or
- “Donate by debit/credit card”, which will charge your card and deposit the funds directly into the church’s account.
If you mail a check, please write on the memo line the purpose of the gift, especially if it is for other than your regular gifts (e.g., if it is for RIP Medical Debt, flowers, music, etc.).
If you use the online option, please make sure you fill in the “Memo” box, so we will know if it is for RIP Medical Debt, flowers, music, etc., or your regular gifts.
If there is no designation in the memo line or the memo box, I can only credit the gift to your regular support of the parish general fund revenues.
Of course, gifts of appreciated stock can always be made, as well, and if you want to do that, please contact Claudia or me for the instructions for that.
Thanks, and be safe.
