We are very happy that we now have online giving on our parish website. Most parishioners make their regular contributions to the parish by envelopes only 38 times out of 52 in the year. There are many reasons for this: vacations, business trips, illness, snowstorms. With Online Giving you can make sure that the parish will receive your offertory pledge each week even when for good reason you are not at Mass at St. Mary’s on the weekend. It is so important for the parish to have a steady and uninterrupted cash flow to enable us to meet our many financial obligations, all of which are a necessary part of our parish life and which enable us to be a special parish with a special mission to the Church and to the world. Please visit the webpage and read about the various ways of setting up an account to enable you to use Online Giving. You will see that there is also an easy way to give a one-time gift to the parish when the Spirit moves you. We sincerely hope that Online Giving will be of great benefit to the parishioners of St. Mary’s Church.
