“Give, and it will be given to you.
A good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over,
will be put into your lap; for the measure you give will be the measure you get back.”
A Note from Fr. Ray
Giving is an essential part of living our faith in Jesus Christ. Your generous gifts of time, talent and treasure to St. Joan of Arc parish make it possible for us to carry out our mission: To be Christ for others, as Christ is for us. You provide the sole financial support which enables our parish to proclaim Christ in prayer, teaching, and service. Thank you for your every effort to be a faithful steward of God’s gifts. When you give, it truly makes a difference!
- Electronic Giving – For your convenience and to support faithful weekly giving, St. Joan of Arc parish offers you the opportunity to contribute to the Church by using your credit card as well as automatic payments from your checking or savings accounts. You control the frequency of your giving and can print reports at any time. These options are safe, secure and convenient. You can easily access and set up your giving choice here on our website through Online Donations or through our parish communication tool, Giving on Realm. Or, if you prefer Electronic Fund Transfer (EFT), which transfers money from your checking account on the 1st and/or 15th of the month, the Parish Office is required to set that up. Complete this form and return to the Parish Office.
- Weekly Envelopes – Envelopes are mailed monthly to every registered household in the parish that is not participating in Electronic Giving. In addition to the weekly offering to the parish, envelopes include major Holy Days, Diocesan and Special Offerings.
