Churches now routinely offer online giving for church donations. There are many reasons for this. Fewer people are using cash and checks. Mass attendance at your home parish is usually interrupted by vacations, business trips, illness, snow storms, etc. and many people find it easier (and greener) to not have to deal with church envelopes.
St. Patrick’s offers several forms of online giving:
(1) Faith Direct: Signing up for Faith Direct allows you to indicate a weekly contribution amount that is automatically withdrawn from your account. You can also contribute to holy day and special collections through Faith Direct. Contributions can be stopped or the amount changed at any time. An app is also available to smartphone users for instant access to you Faith Direct account. To sign up, go to www.Faithdirect.net and use our parish code: NY51
(2) Our website: You can contribute at any time by going to our website and click the Donate button at the top right.
(3) Our Parish App: In addition to its many other features, the OneParish App includes a donation page that allows quick and easy one-time or recurring donations.
