Ways to Support
Ways to Financially Support Your Parish
Annual Pledge. Your annual tithing pledge to St. Patrick's Parish is crucial. It allows the Finance Council to accurately budget the needed funds to support the parish programs and ministries for the upcoming fiscal year.
Automated Contributions (ACH). The easiest way to contribute to the parish is by ACH. This allows you to make regular donations from your checking, savings, or credit card account. The forms to start or change automatic payments are on this site. Remember to include a voided check to start or change bank accounts. Donations can be designated for Sunday Offering, Parish Improvement Fund, St. Vincent de Paul & Catholic Charities, or any Specified Ministry. Internet Banking. If you do not sign up for ACH, you can still enjoy the ease of automated payments. Many banks allow you to make one-time or multiple payments online. Use your bank’s web site and follow their instructions. Remember, your payment should tell us what it is for: Sunday Offering, Parish Improvement Fund, etc. Please use your parish member /envelope number as an account number.
Online giving. Online giving allows for a specific dollar amount to be deducted automatically from a
checking, savings or credit card account. You can set up online giving either as a one-time donation or a recurring gift. Online giving is not only easy, it's also safe and secure. This option helps individuals and families remain faithful in their giving even when they are out of town or unable to attend a weekend Mass.
Church Envelopes. Envelopes give you a way to regularly contribute to several causes in addition to Sunday Offering.
Collection Plate. We gladly accept cash donations, however, if you want us to record your contribution and include it on your end-of-year statement for income tax purposes, we can only do so if you use envelopes or contribute by check.
Gifting of Stock. Request instructions for gifting of stock here.
Please make all checks payable to St. Patrick's Parish unless otherwise instructed. Use the Memo line to tell us your parish member /envelope number or what your check is to be used for.
There are times when church projects and programs will request in-kind items. The office can provide receipts for these donations.
If you have any questions please call the church office, (209) 383-3924. We will be glad to answer questions and assist you.
