Parish eGiving

Parish News

You may be aware we have had a way of supporting our parish through "eGiving" called Faith Direct. Nearly 190 registered parishioner families at Holy Cross use Faith Direct: I count myself among them.

To those of you who are using the Faith Direct service to make your generous donations to our parish, Thank you! Your support has made this program a cost-effective, efficient and secure way for our parish to receive your gifts.

People are deciding to use this outstanding program for a variety of reasons. Here are three that I hear time and again from families who are now giving through Faith Direct:

  • Simplicity: Imagine not having to write a check each Sunday morning- and no more searching around for your offertory envelopes. People are finding that Sundays are simpler with Faith Direct- so there's more time to focus on Mass, prayers, and God's message that day.
  • Consistency: Many who have switched to Faith Direct appreciate the fact that they can support our ministries even when they are out of town or unable to attend Mass- and they're happy that this consistency helps Holy Cross more effectively plan our programs and services.
  • Savings: People are telling me that they like eGiving because it helps our parish conserve resources. Faith Direct is more cost-effective than printing up and mailing out envelopes, and the money we save can help us further expand our ministries. Faith Direct provides the option for offertory cards when you enroll to place in the basket during mass. It is another simple way to encourage others to support the work of the Church through on-line giving.

In the next couple of weeks, you will be receiving in the mail information on how you can enroll in Faith Direct.

What will you like most about Faith Direct? Whether it's the simplicity or the fact that eGiving helps your offerings have an even greater impact, you can enjoy the benefits that matter most to you by signing up now.

Thank you for giving Faith Direct your prayerful consideration - and thank you especially for being part of Holy Cross and our ministries. May God bless you and your family.
