PASSING THE VIRTUAL OFFERTORY BASKET
We really need everyone to make an ongoing pledge to support our mission. Electronic giving is currently the most consistent way to give, safest and most reliable. Will you consider how you can help us during this time?
Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT)
MOST RECOMMENDED -
For reoccurring gifts, you can set up automatic debit to one’s bank account or charges to one’s credit card.
Please fill out this
Offertory Commitment Form
to set up recurring payments.
One-Time Online Donation
If you normally donate by envelopes or the basket, we have set up a link to donate online with a one-time donation by credit card.
Click here to complete the form
. You may use this link as often as you like.
Another option is through our new TEXT-to-GIVE number. Donate simply by texting SFDS to 740.240.6093. You can also use this in place of your normal offertory basket giving.
If you would like to continue using your envelopes, please mail your contribution into the parish office at 40 Granville Street, Newark, OH 43055. Checks are preferred as cash is not a safe or secure way to fulfill your offertory through the mail.
