More and more parishioners are realizing that making their offertory gift electronically is safe, convenient and good for the environment.
The transaction is a pre-authorized electronic transfer of funds from your checking or savings account or charge to your credit card for SJC. Visa, Mastercard and Discover cards are accepted. It is made on a regular schedule: monthly, quarterly or annually, which makes it easy to keep track of your payment. You will receive an automatic acknowledgment email when your transaction is complete.
As always, your personal information remains safe and secure. In fact, you actually gain financial privacy because the transaction is electronic and no one sees your account information.
This convenient form of giving requires an easy, one-time set-up process. You will never have to worry about a missed offertory gift again or having to write a check at the last minute. It is perfect for families on vacation who cannot be with us on a Sunday.
Giving electronically eliminates the cost of checks, and it’s good for the environment. And for those who feel more comfortable putting something in the collection basket each week, your parish envelopes are now available with a box to check that you give electronically or you can download an e-giving receipt from our website that can be put in the basket.
The online giving process involves the same safe and secure network that financial institutions, businesses, and governments use to send and receive payments. And the transactions are covered by federal consumer protection rules and regulations.
