Recently, we have introduced a new way for you to support our parish offertory and second collections: Faith Direct. With Faith Direct, you can make regular automatic contributions to St. Patrick using your credit/debit card or bank account, the same process that you may use to pay utility bills or make car payments.
Making your donations automatically, means relief from the hassle of locating your offertory envelopes as you run out the door on Sunday morning, and guarantees that the church will receive your gifts even if you are unable to attend Mass. There is no fee to you, the parishioner, associated with use of the Faith Direct program. Automatic contributions greatly benefit St. Patrick by providing a predictable cash flow as well as decreasing the time and money the church expends dealing with the envelope system. Faith Direct will provide you with personalized offertory cards that you may place in the basket, and a year end tax statement.
You can enroll in this program by picking up an enrollment form from the church office, or by visiting www.faithdirect.net to enroll securely online. Our parish code is DC90.
Please do not hesitate to contact me for any additional information.
