Weekly Offertory and Special Collections
The weekly offertory collections taken during our weekend masses are an important source of income for our parish. Your weekly financial contributions make a big difference in our parish. Here are just a few ways your weekly gift is used:
- To pay for the utilities which keep the parish buildings running efficiently for all those who gather for prayer, education or social ministry.
- To purchase the many supplies that are needed for our liturgies and sacraments, including hosts, wine, candles, prayer books and hymnals.
- To support the programs and staff which provide services to our parish families
- To maintain the parish facilities and grounds so that our parishioners and visitors enjoy a positive welcoming experience each time they visit
Every registered parishioner will receive personalized weekly offertory envelopes by mail. You can use these envelopes to make your regular offertory contributions at Mass and they will help us to record your donation amounts for tax purposes. Envelopes will also be provided for special collections and Holy Days.
If you are not a registered parishioner or do not have your envelopes with you, you can simply drop your contribution into the offertory basket when it is passed. Blank envelopes with a place to write your name and/or envelope number on them are available at the end of the pew as well.
This option allows us to debit your checking or savings account each month for the amount of your contribution. You can choose to have your account debited monthly or bi-weekly. You may stop this option at any time by written notice to the Parish Office.
