STOP! DON’T DROP ENVELOPES

Just a reminder that we are no longer requiring those families that will be submitting Parish Verification Forms for Catholic Schools to drop your envelopes in the offertory each week if you are signed up for online giving.

PARISH VERIFICATIONS

It’s that time of year again and we’re already receiving Parish Verification forms in the parish office for those families with children in Catholic schools or applying to Catholic school.

As you are aware, the Archdiocese of Atlanta requires these forms to be submitted. The Archdiocese defines “active parishioners” as those registered and worshipping members who contribute of their time, talent and financial resources to support the Parish by  the following:

  • Regular attendance at liturgy,
  • consistent financial support, and
  • volunteer involvement within the parish.

Since we are no longer requiring families to drop empty envelopes to verify Mass attendance we will be placing greater emphasis on time/talent/treasure.

Also, all parish verification forms MUST be turned in with a family photograph attached.

If you are submitting electronically, please email a photo to Anne Stephens at astephens@olachurch.org when you submit the form.
