Thank you to all of our E-Givers! You may not see these fellow parishioners place an envelope in the basket each week, but their consistent giving does not go unnoticed.  Each month our parish receives a steady and predictable stream of income from those donors who have made the commitment to give to God first by having a designated contribution automatically transferred to our parish through our Online Giving Program. These and all consistent contributions help support the day-to-day operation of the parish as well as all our ministries.  Help our parish grow and expand our ministries and outreach!  Contribute regularly to YOUR parish!  Questions? Need help setting up your account? Call Carol in the parish office: 910-488-1797.
