Seventh Sunday of Easter

May 17 2015

Dear Friends,

Thanks for your continued, generous offertory gifts to our parish!

If you’ve tried to support our parish’s mission of faith, worship and charity, in an easy and efficient way by automatic deposit, doubtless you found that the system our parish has been using is “user-unfriendly”!  Well, I have some good news:  we are now partnering with user-friendly Faith Direct–the leading eGiving program for Catholic churches in the nation–so your eGiving will be much easier.

If you are not currently using eGiving, I encourage you please to consider making all of your contributions to St. Charles Parish via automatic payment from your checking account or credit card–just as you may do now with your mortgage or rent payment, car payment, and other monthly payments.

There are many ways that giving your support through Faith Direct will be of great benefit to you and to St. Charles.  Here are four examples; Faith Direct offers:

  • Convenience:  With Faith Direct you won’t have to carry cash or write a check each weekend, or search around for your offertory envelopes:  you’ll have more time each Sunday to focus on Mass!
  • Consistency:  Through Faith Direct you can support the mission of our parish even when you’re out of town or unable to attend Mass.  This enables us to count on a regular income from week to week, and so to budget and to plan more effectively for our many good works.
  • Cost-Effectiveness:  Every parishioner who uses Faith Direct means one less package of envelopes to print and to mail–and that means greater savings for our parish, as well as less of a negative impact on the environment.
  • Commitment:  Faith Direct helps you respond to the Gospel challenge to be generous by pledging to give a fixed, regular sacrificial gift.

Would you please consider supporting our mission by responding to a Faith Direct mailing you will receive from me?  Even better:  just take 10 minutes today to visit  www.faithdirect.net  and securely enroll online with our parish code:  VA681.  With online enrollment, you can access your account at any time to view and to make any changes to your account information and gifts.

New technology can serve both to further the mission of the Church and to make our lives easier.  I hope you will take advantage of it by enrolling with Faith Direct, and I thank you for your continued generous support of all the good we do here at St. Charles.  I remain,

Your servant in Christ Jesus,

      Father Don
