Thank YOU to Everyone Who Has Switched from Weekly Envelopes to Online Giving!

Our parish currently spends $12,000 a year to mail weekly collection envelopes. We would love to have as many people as possible to switch to online giving through "Parish Giving", to help us reduce or eliminate this expense. It is easy to switch. Just go to the Parish Giving link and follow the steps. They will be happy to answer any questions you may have. Thank you!
