We're Reinstating Second Collections for Online Giving and Parish Verifications
A few years ago, we stopped sending envelopes to parishioners who have signed up for online giving. Since that time there has been a noticeable decline in donations to the 2nd Collections that help fund important ministries throughout the archdiocese and the United States. Beginning in January 2024 we will resume sending envelopes in the hopes of increasing support for the second collections.
We also stopped requiring parents who submit Parish Verifications for Catholic School to drop their offertory envelopes - even if empty - each week to verify Mass attendance. Unfortunately, we have come to realize that there are parishioners who take advantage of that decision. Effective January 2024 all families requiring active parishioner status for Catholic Schools must drop their envelopes at Mass each week.
