I am excited to introduce our new St. Jude E-Giving, an exciting way to support our parish finances for both our year round and seasonal parishioners.
Automated E-Giving is the leading way for parishioners to support their parishes through electronic means.
The St. Jude E-Giving program gives you a convenient way to support St. Jude by electing to a credit card like most of us do for other payments or charitable giving. It also gives you the opportunity to support our parish even if you are absent from Mass or away from our parish community for an extended period of time. And, it addresses the situation I know many families face on their way to Mass: Where did I put my envelopes?!
With St. Jude E-Giving, our parish will gain predictable cash flow that will help us with planning our parish needs and programs throughout the year. As Christian stewards, it will give you the opportunity to better plan your finances when supporting our church.
How does it work? The Bookkeeper has made it very simple and will handle the entire process for our parish.
To enroll you may:
(1) Complete an enrollment form from the website or in the parish office and return it to the office
(2) Perhaps even easier, clicking this link will send you straight to the secure website for St. Jude, where you may enroll online.
There is no cost to you as a parishioner to enroll. The following month in which you are enrolled, we will begin debiting your specified account on the 4th or the 15th business day of the month for your offertory gift or second collections. You will receive confirmation on your credit card statement, a complete statement for tax planning purposes at the end of the year, “offertory cards” to demonstrate your parish support and access your own individual account online.
I find our St. Jude E-Giving a “win-win” for both parishioners and strongly encourage you to give the program your consideration. I am grateful for your financial and prayerful support of our parish and available to answer any questions you might have. I appreciate your support!
