FREQUENT ASKED QUESTIONS

  1. Placing the envelope in the basket is part of my weekly celebration with my family what should I do? 
    Special donation cards are available for those enrolled in the Online Giving program which can be dropped in the collection basket.

     
  2. What if I try Online Giving and don’t like it?
    You can cancel your authorization anytime by deleting your accounts and donation dates.

     
  3. Is my information safe?
    Yes.  Your information is maintained on a secure system.  If you enter information through the Online Giving button the Parish only sees your contact information and donation (not your account information)

     
  4. How can I be assured I get proper credit for tax purposes?
    Your donations will still be recorded in the parish data system so that we can provide annual reports of your contributions.  This information will come from your name and address.  Your envelope number, if entered, also serves as an “account number” which we use to track your donations.
