St. Mary’s Parish parishioners have two options to consider for simplifying their donations – Automatic Giving or WeShare Online Giving. Details follow.
The St. Mary’s Finance Council asks all parishioners to please consider making the switch to Automatic Giving. This is by far the most convenient way for you to give, and the most helpful form of giving for your parish. Why?
1) Your bank sends your weekly parish support, in the amount you dictate, year-round. You don’t need to remember offertory envelopes or checkbooks when you come to Mass. As with Mass envelopes, you will receive an annual tax statement for your giving.
2) Your parish is protected against long holiday weekends, summer vacations, severe weather and other times that you may physically be away but St. Mary’s still must pay her bills. With Automatic Giving, you don’t have to remember to make up missed offertory.
3) It’s easy and your bank does it for free.
WeShare Electronic Giving
As part of our Stewardship program, we ask you to consider giving your Sunday, Holy Day and other collections electronically using the WeShare program to schedule payments from your checking account, savings account, or credit card.
The benefits of online giving with WeShare include web access at all times, the ability to schedule your payments to coincide with your pay period, and the ease of adjusting your contributions at any time. You can allocate different amounts for different collections and make your donations one-time or recurring. You can setup WeShare yourself using their secure web site, which will give you the ability to look at your giving history at any time.
WeShare offers flexible payment options as well as the opportunity of giving a one-time donation when circumstances such as vacation or extreme weather conditions prohibit you from attending Mass.
