A Convenient Way to Make Your Church Contributions

St. Patrick Church offers an automated method for your church contributions.  This is through the ACH (Automated Clearing House) process. The ACH process works like this: the amount you designate is electronically withdrawn from your account and credited to St. Patrick's.

The church will not have access to your bank account. Your contributions are confidential.

All you will need to do is fill out the authorization form, attach a void check, and turn it in to the parish office. You will select a set amount which will be deposited to the church account on a schedule of your choice. Many options are available. You may participate in this process regardless of where you bank. You will gain the convenience of not filling out a check or looking for cash at the last minute. Contributions continue as planned even if you are out of town. The contributions are tax-deductible. There is no fee for this service.

You will receive credit for all contributions. If you wish to change the amount, simply fill out another form. If you wish to cancel the authorization, you may fill out a cancellation form giving a few days advance notice.

This automated giving is intended for your regular weekly/monthly tithing. You may continue to give by check or cash for other collections such as Christmas or Easter.

Forms are available in the church office and here: pdf ACH Contribution Form (28 KB).

Please call Carilyn in the church office if you have any questions.

We encourage everyone to consider this way of giving.
