Step 1: Set up your account with Pushpay. Click the image on the right to start.
Step 2: Choose the amount you want to give and how often you want to give.
Step 3: Choose when you want your gift to start. If your Faith Direct gift has already been withdrawn from your account or your credit card (very likely if it is after the 15th of the month!), then make sure your gift starts in the next month.
Step 4: Choose the fund. Your regular Sunday giving is Stewardship. Don’t worry, you will get the chance to give to other funds after your account is set up.
Step 5: Click “Next.” On the next screen, they ask for your mobile number. Enter that, and click “next” again.
Step 6: Fill in payment information, and then contact information. It is helpful for us if you use the same email and phone number as we have for you here at the church.
Step 7: Click the blue button and you are good to go! If you would like to set up gifts to other funds, click “give again” and follow the prompts.

Catholic Home Mission
Right now, over 40 percent of dioceses in the United States are considered home mission territory because they are unable to fund the essential pastoral work needed in their communities. These dioceses face challenges due to priest shortages, lack of funds, remote geography, or impoverished parishes. Through annual grants, the Catholic Home Mission Collection funds catechesis, seminarian education, lay ministry training, Hispanic ministry and other pastoral programs. As a result of parishioners’ generosity, Catholic Home Missions impacts the lives of nearly 9 million Catholics in the United States.

Materials provided by the (Franciscan) Commissariat for the Holy Land each year are posters and a letter to pastors. Parishes are asked to request a Good Friday donation envelope in their packets from their envelope companies each year.

World Mission Sunday, our annual worldwide Eucharistic celebration for the Missions and missionaries of the world, is celebrated on the second-to-last Sunday in October. It is a unique, global effort for the entire Church to provide for the building up of over one thousand local churches in Asia and Africa, the Pacific Islands, and parts of Latin America and Europe. Through the work of these churches, and their witness to Christ, the poor receive practical help and experience God’s love and mercy, His hope and peace.
