ONLINE GIVING - myEoffering

myeofferingDue to the Coronavirus COVID-19 crisis - and going forward in the future - we would like you to consider participating in a our new online Giving Program, myEoffering, designed to simplify weekly giving in our parish.

Electronic giving will enable every household or individual to make their church offering using electronic funds transfer or credit card. You may already be using online bill pay for your mortgage, car payment, or insurance premium through an automatic withdrawal from your checking or savings account. Many of you also have used your credit cards to purchase goods online through Amazon, eBay, or a number of other sites.

We have teamed up with myEoffering to enable you to use the same process to give your offering electronically from your bank account, credit or debit cards.

There is no cost to you for this new giving option. If you are currently giving on a weekly basis, you will no longer need to write out 52 checks a year or prepare 52 envelopes. And because of current restrictions or when travel, illness or other circumstances prevent you from attending services, this program will allow your weekly offerings to continue uninterrupted.

You can participate in the electronic giving program immediately. Signing up is very simple and clicking on the “Donate Now” button below or to the right.  You’ll register an account and within minutes you will be giving your first online donation. The steps are outlined here. Download the document and follow the easy steps.
