We at SACRED HEART OF JESUS have been blessed as a parish 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 maintain 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 you to financially support the parish, we have instituted an electronic payment option. This offers you the opportunity to make automatic financial contributions from your bank account to our parish community.
Please understand that Online Giving is not intended to replace the traditional act of Sunday offering, but rather to enhance it. You may continue to receive offering envelopes if you wish. The new envelopes have a box marked, “I have given electronically”, so you can still participate in the Sunday Offering. Please prayerfully consider Online Giving.
To begin Online Giving you will need certain information. If you are giving by Electronic Funds Transfer you will need your bank account and routing numbers, which can be found on the bottom of one of your checks or from your financial institution. If you are giving by a credit card, you will need the credit card information.
Within Online Giving it is possible to direct your offering to a specific purpose within the parish, such as Building Fund, Maintenance Fund, or general Sunday collection.
Online Giving is done via a separate secure website and SACRED HEART OF JESUS will not have access to any of your banking information at any time. Online Giving may be set for Sunday or holy days, either weekly recurring gifts or one time gifts (for holy days). Online Giving accounts and dates can be changed at any time. Email reminders let your know that the giving is about to be deducted from your account.
