FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT ONLINE GIVING
Q. I want to share with my children and grandchildren how important it is to give on Sunday and if I eliminate envelopes how do I model this for my children?
A. Your participation in the offertory is an integral part of Sunday Mass and your opportunity to express gratitude and blessings for the gifts Our Lord has given and return a portion of them back. Placing your give in the offertory basket is an act of worship and an important opportunity to model to others especially children the spiritual discipline of giving. With online giving you are still able to place your gift in the offertory when you use the 'Donation Slips'. These are avaiable for you to print-off from this website and they are small enough to keep in your purse or wallet, so you have them each week when you are at Mass.
Q. I like the idea of eliminating envelopes, but how do I donate to 50/50 without an envelope?
A. 50/50 is the online contribution that we cannot accept through our online giving program, WeShare, because it is considered gaming and the state does not allow us to accept online payments for this. If you no longer wish to receive envelopes but still want to participate in the monthly 50/50 drawing, you can simply place your donation of $10 in an envelope and include the following information:
Envelope # (optional): _____________________________
