An Easier Way to Support Your Parish
To strengthen stewardship at St. Mary Parish, we would like you to consider utilizing an easier way to support our parish — automated giving. It's easy and convenient for you and helps the parish better plan and budget when we can be assured of our income each month. You also can budget and make your offerings more conveniently without writing checks or remembering envelopes. It is an alternate means of support for St. Mary Parish instead of using envelopes.In lieu of weekly collections, the ParishPay program will collect monthly contributions from your checking, savings or credit card account. There is NO cost to you to participate in the program.
When ParishPay was introduced to St. Mary’s several years ago, it was immediately successful and there are now over 200 parish households who contribute through this electronic giving program. We ask that you consider signing up for ParishPay.
The new method is all automatic, which offers convenience and a variety of other benefits that are superior to the envelope system. Now you don’t have to write 50 or more checks per year, or worry about having enough cash-on-hand at the time of offering, or play “catch-up” when sidetracked by winter weather. We hope that you will find one of the automated offering methods to be a convenient option for your weekly offering and special collections. While these alternatives will provide you with flexibility and convenience, they will also ensure that we are making the best use of God’s gifts in our parish. Increased predictability and reliability of the parish offering will allow us to serve the needs of our parish more efficiently and more effectively. Visit ParishPay.com to register and get started.
If you know of other family members who currently support the parish financially, but do not use the envelopes, please encourage them to register for ParishPay or begin using the envelopes. Without the weekly envelopes or ParishPay, we have no way of knowing if you and your family are active members of the parish.
Thank you for your continued support of our parish community, and for considering ParishPay. This is of great importance to us in helping to address our finances and to better insure the success and growth of St. Mary’s.
