Thank you for your gift!
Financial giving and the Christian life
Catholics tend not to like talking about money. But financial giving is a big part of the Christian life. Jesus praises the widow who gives all she has (Mk 12:41-44) and Paul talks a lot about giving money (Rom 15:22-29; 1 Cor 16:1-11; 2 Cor 8-9). Paul even connects giving money with becoming like Christ who “though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you by his poverty might become rich” (2 Cor 8:9).
Giving can be hard. In fact, it more or less should be (see the episode with the widow above). It’s a lived-out way of participating in the very life of the Father who gives all he has to the Son and the Spirit and of the Son and Spirit who give all they have to the Father and each other. It is in living this life that we find joy.
Ways to give financially
Make a one-time or recurring gift online
We use a service called Pushpay which allows you to use your credit or debit card to make a gift. You can also choose to set up a recurring gift. Pushpay charges a small fee (2.2%) which the parish pays unless you opt in to cover that fee. You can set up an account with Pushpay and make changes to recurring payments as you see fit.
Set up a recurring gift via ACH
ACH is a means of transferring money directly from a bank account. The upside of doing this is that there are no fees involved and you do not need to worry about updating credit/debit card information. If you would like to set up an ACH recurring gift, the click on the link below, print and fill out the form, and then return it to the parish office. See the forms for more information.
Need to make changes to your giving?
Not a problem!
If you set up giving through Pushpay (online giving with a credit or debit card), then simply click on the link below to go to Pushpay. Then sign into your account and make the necessary changes.
If you need to make changes to your ACH giving (directly from your bank account), then access the documents below, print and fill them out, and turn them into the parish office.
