A parish cannot survive without the generosity of its parishioners.
Regular, planned, sacrificial giving provides resources needed for our parish to fulfill its stated mission. Your sustaining gifts provide for worship services, pastoral, educational, and administrative staff, and community outreach initiatives to provide for the poor and needy of our parish and community.
There are several different methods in which to give. St. Joseph’s is appreciative of your giving, no matter the method.
Please be aware we are unable to track loose cash donations.
Plan your gift as part of your monthly budget and elect to use weekly envelopes. All donations are recorded in our database for end of year tax statements. Email our parish office at firstname.lastname@example.org to request offertory envelopes be sent to you.
LOOSE CHECK DONATIONS
These are recorded in our records for end of year tax statements for registered parishioners only.
AUTO BILL PAY
Log in to your online banking system and set up a weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, or even one-time payment to be sent to St. Joseph’s. We process this donation as we would any donation check received. Please mark in the memo of this check where you intend your donation to be applied, e.g., offertory, maintenance, Catholic Schools, etc. Including your envelope number also facilitates the recording of your donations.
ELECTRONIC FUNDS TRANSFER (EFT)
The most convenient way to support our parish and the important outreach and ministries the church provides is by electronic transfer of funds through a checking account, savings account, or by a charge to your credit card.
Faith Direct, our EFT provider, offers a secure way for you to send, and our parish to receive, your regular contributions, even when on vacation or when business takes you out of town, or an illness prevents you from attending Mass. Faith Direct also provides you with a personalized “offertory card” that you can choose to place in the collection basket as a visible sign of your support.
