The Dioceses has encouraged parishes to set up an internet option for giving to the parish. It was suggested that we use an authorized service of CanadaHelps.com. We have registered St. Mary’s and we can receive donations through the internet, in a simple and secure way.
All you need to do is click the button “donate now” above, you will be redirected to a secure service where you can complete your order. There are several options, you can choose the amount you want to donate, choose one-time or recurring donation. We suggest that if you would like to make your Sunday contribution this way you choose the monthly option. You can choose payment through credit or debit card. Also you can make your donation in memory of a beloved person, or important event, or in support of building repairs. There is also a space for a comment. All transactions are perfectly secured. The CanadaHelps will also provide your tax receipts. We cannot accept mass stipends and SVP donations due to tax requirements.
We are asking anyone who likes St. Mary’s and want’s it to operate now and in the future without financial shortages to consider this option. If you set up recurring payment, then even if you are unable to attend church your donation will always reach us on time. You don’t need to carry cash with you to church. We can observe sometimes significant decreases in the Sunday collection especially during summer time and after all popular holidays and celebrations like Christmas, Easter, Confirmation, First Communion, etc. Our church was built and maintained over so many years through people like you, today we count on you! We always pray for our benefactors, those alive and deceased.
