We at St. Anthony Parish have been blessed in so many ways, beginning with our Eucharistic celebration and extending 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.
To help make it more convenient for you to financially support the parish, we have instituted an electronic payment option, also referred to as Online Giving. 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 will be able to keep your offering envelope number. You may have noticed the "I gave online" cards at the entrances of church, giving you the opportunity to still have something to place in the offertory basket, if you feel the need.
With Online Giving you will be able to set up a budget for the whole year, if you wish, or for any time period within the year, directing how much you wish to be withdrawn, not only for the weekend offering, but for Holy days, Diocesan collections and parish collections, e.g. Fuel and Catholic Education.
Online Giving is done via a separate secure web site and no one in the office at St. Anthony Church will have access to any of your banking information at any time. Email reminders let you know that the giving is about to be deducted from your account. Your Online Giving accounts, dates and amounts of donations can be changed at any time.
To sign up, simply go to our homepage and click on the Online Giving logo at the bottom of the page. Feel free to call Linda at the rectory office for assistance or answers to any questions. If you don't have web access, she will be happy to set up your account for you.
