Dear Editor: Please consider signing up for electronic payments to your parish during this crisis.
My parish uses Faith Direct, but I have also seen Parish Pay. Your local parish will still need monetary contributions to keep paying basic expenses such as salaries, utilities, and insurance while the doors remain shut.
If your economic situation is uncertain, please consider making a one-time donation. It takes just a few minutes online or over the phone to sign up. I increased my monthly donation last week.
My dad volunteered for years by counting the collection every Monday at St. Fidelis Church in College Point. Finding volunteers to open envelopes every week is becoming a challenge for most parishes. Now, in these uncertain times, there could be health risks to volunteers that handle envelopes and currency.
Now is the time to sign up to support your parish!
