Faith Direct is a convenient and secure way for you to make your donations to Saint Joseph Catholic Community electronically via automatic payment from your checking account or credit card.
By supporting our parish through Faith Direct, you will be part of an innovative new way of giving that saves time, money, and resources.
Benefits to You
For you and your family, Faith Direct offers many benefits including –
- Flexibility. You can choose the amount and timing of your contributions and designate your preferred source for them. There is no cost to you to enroll and you can adjust or stop your donations at any time.
- Convenience. Once you designate your preferences, your contributions will be made automatically for you. You can manage your donations easily online or by telephone.
- Reliability. Electronic giving is an ideal way for you to send your regular contributions – even when vacation or business takes you out of town, or an illness prevents you from attending Mass.
Benefits for Our Parish
Choosing to give electronically helps Saint Joseph Catholic Community in many ways:
- It will save our parish considerable time and expense.
- It helps bring consistency to our parish by giving us a better idea of the funds we will have coming in week after week so we can make our ministries and programs as far-reaching and effective as possible.
- It reduces the unavoidable built-in waste of using traditional envelopes. Most of the thousands of envelopes sent out go unused and are thrown away – and every envelope, whether it’s used or not, means the destruction of trees and our natural resources. Through automated giving you will not only be helping to strengthen our Church – you’ll be helping to preserve God’s green earth!
Many parishes in our Diocese and others nationwide have already experienced the benefits of this program.
What Will I Do When they Pass the Offertory Basket?
