We are pleased to announce that our parish is now offering an additional option for giving in support of our parish.Our new Online Giving Program is available for parishioners who would like to make donations online. As technology continues to progress, there are more ways that these advances can be utilized for the well-being of our parish life.
Our Sunday Visitor has been chosen as our Online Giving provider. Our Sunday Visitor serves millions of Catholics worldwide through its publishing, offertory and communication services. Established in 1912 by a local parish priest, the company has grown into the nation’s largest supplier of offering envelopes, parish and diocesan mailings, books, periodicals, address management and stewardship services. Our Sunday Visitor is a not-for-profit organization, donating a portion of net earnings back to the Catholic community through the OSV Institute. They also boast the highest security standards and most flexible capabilities for Online Giving.
As for the Online Giving service itself, there are many benefits for the parish as well as parishioners who choose to use it. You will have the ability to align your contributions with your pay cycle; there will be no need to share confidential account information with parish staff and you will have complete control of your contribution amount which can easily be adjusted as needed. In time we hope that our electronic giving users find the system so easy to use that we can eliminate the costs associated with sending contribution envelopes by mail. The new Visa/Mastercard credit card option allows you to take advantage of any benefits such as airline mileage or cash bonuses that are available to you. This method of giving also has parish administration benefits. It allows for more accurate revenue forecasting, and it eliminates the parish staff’s concerns regarding the security of sensitive data.
