Electronic Giving

Members of our parish family contribute to the community's well-being through prayer, service and money donations.  The opportunities for you to share in prayer and service donations are described in considerable detail throughout this website. 

Money donations are used for the maintenance and upkeep of the parish,  and they enable our church to provide service to needy families and groups in the community.   Many parishioners provide money donations by using  envelopes given to registered members, and placing the envelopes in the collection basket each Sunday during  Mass.  Others prefer to use "electronic giving", whereby contributions are deducted from bank or credit card accounts.  If the concept of electronic giving interests you, please download the Electronic Giving  Authorization form by clicking on the picture-link  below.   (The form is in Adobe Acrobat Reader.)

Tax Deductions and  Contributions to the Church

Parishioners who contribute to  the parish through the Sunday Envelope or Electronic Giving Programs may request a receipt at the end of each calendar year.  The IRS requires this type of written evidence  if you claim charitable giving  deductions on your tax forms.  To receive a receipt, call the parish rectory at (562) 498-6641.
