Offertory Awareness Program
Our Offertory Awareness Program is off to a great start, and we couldn't have done it without your participation. If you have not had the opportunity to complete your offertory card, please call the parish office and talk to the staff. If necessary, a brochure will be mailed to you. Thank you to all those who have already expressed their commitments. Formal acknowledgment letters will be coming soon.
Program Kickoff (October 6-7)
Through Faith Direct you can make all of your contributions to St. Anthony Parish via automatic payment from your checking account or credit card just as you may do now with your mortgage, household bills, and other monthly payments. This is a great way to simplify your giving and it’s the most cost-effective, environmentally friendly way for us to receive your gifts.
There are many ways that giving your support through Faith Direct will be of great benefit to you and to the parish. Here are three examples:
- Convenience: With Faith Direct you won’t have to write a check each Sunday morning or search around for your offertory envelopes. You can spend more time each Sunday focused on Mass, your prayers, and what God is speaking to your heart!
- Consistency: Through Faith Direct you can support our ministries even when you are out of town or unable to attend Mass. This gives us a better idea of the funds we will have coming in week after week and allows us to more effectively plan our programs and services.
- Cost-Effective: Every parishioner signing up with Faith Direct means one less package of envelopes to print and mail out – and that will mean savings for our parish, which we can use to further expand our ministries throughout our community and reach more people with Christ’s love. (It also means that together, we’ll be using less paper and easing our impact on the environment!)
Can I count on you to set aside five or ten minutes today to fill out the enclosed enrollment form and send it to Faith Direct? With online enrollment, you will be able to access your account any time to view and make changes to your account information and gifts.
God has blessed us with this technology that makes giving easier for you, and that allows your gift to have an even greater impact for St. Anthony Parish. I am grateful for your generous support and hope you will join me in enrolling with Faith Direct.
