To make it more convenient for you to support our parish and the important ministries the Church provides, we are partnering with Faith Direct – the leading eGiving program for Catholic churches in the Archdiocese as well as in other dioceses across the country.
Through Faith Direct you can make all of your contributions to Our Lady of Lourdes by way of automatic payment from your checking account or credit card – just as you may do now with your mortgage, house hold bills, and other monthly payments. This is a great way to simplify your giving – and it’s the most cost-effective, environmentally-friendly way for us to receive your gifts.
We have settled upon this company because of their security (passing the strictest audits) and their reputation among other parishes who utilize their services. Faith Direct is also the best deal for our parish because of their reasonably low cost and because it is the only company that actually will save time for our parish staff. There will be less data entry needed as the secure files are sent directly to our parish office and then “uploaded” into our database. As always, all information is treated as confidential.
Those who choose to participate in this program will no longer receive envelopes in the mail, thus reducing our costs of printing and mailing envelopes and saving paper. Faith Direct will provide personalized offertory cards that can be placed in the collection basket if you would like.
If you have any questions about this, feel free to contact Jane Dee or Fr. Jim. You may also visit their website at www.faithdirect.net for more information or contact Faith Direct by phone at 866.507.8757. They will be happy to help you with any questions you may have. Our parish code: MO302
