(Click on the "ParishSoft Giving Portal" link in the left column.I've not used the credit card option, but I've used the ParishSoft Giving Portal since it began.
It is set up just like the envelope system, I have total control of which funds I give to (e.g. weekly contribution, St. Vincent de Paul, Christmas flowers just to name a few).
You can make a one-time donation to a fund (e.g. Christmas or Easter) or make it a recurring donation.
You have total control over how much you contribute and can change the amount any time before the withdrawal is made.
You receive an email reminder 3 days prior to the withdrawal, so if I want to change the amount being withdrawn, you just have to do it prior to the withdrawal.
You receive an email confirmation that includes a transaction number after the money withdrawn.
You can see and print reports of your donations. This makes it easy for tax purposes
Per Fr. Bill, Confessions are back with proper social distancing. They will be in the sacristy with entry via only the door from the main church. There will be a screen for anonymity and a chair for face-to-face confessions. If the door to the sacristy is open, come in and close the door. When you exit the sacristy, leave the door open.
This week's bulletin is attached. It is also available on our website.
