We are now providing our parishioners with a more convenient way to make your donations. Instead of writing a check and bringing an envelope to Mass each week, you can easily create your donation account online and make changes at anytime. Click on the "Give Online with WeShare" button and follow the prompts. Please note that if you currently give through the weekly envelopes, we will stop the weekly envelope delivery automatically. In addition, if you are part of our ACH (automatic deposit) program, you should call the parish office to find out how to stop the ACH before starting with online giving.
