Our parish has been blessed by the Lord in so many ways. It begins with our Eucharistic celebration and extends to our community of faith.
Finances are obviously very important to support our ministry and we appreciate the generous support we receive from our parishioners. As Catholics, we recognize that all we have –our time, our talents, our resources, even our very lives –are gifts from God. We are called to be good stewards of all these gifts, investing them wisely and generously for the sake of God’s Kingdom. We know that our Lord’s promise is to “Seek first His kingdom and His righteousness,and all these things shall be yours as well.”
To help make it more convenient for your to financially support our parish, we have added an electronic payment option. This offers you the opportunity to make automatic financial contributions from your bank account or credit card to our parish. Online Giving costs you nothing and provides many advantages to both you and our parish.

Please understand that Online Giving is not intended to replace the traditional act of Sunday offertory, rather it is meant to enhance it. You may continue to receive offering envelopes if you wish. Reusable cards will also be available in the pews for online giving parishioners to place into the basket so they can still physically participate in the Sunday offertory. Please prayerfully consider Online Giving.
