A Message from Our Parish Finance Council

March 27, 2020

As Fr. Dave and the staff are focusing on the spiritual needs of the parish, we feel it is important to communicate to you that while 51% of our giving comes from Electronic giving, 49% comes to us through the collection at Sunday Mass. Now that we are forced to attend Mass virtually during this COVID-19 “Stay-at-Home” period, we are not able to pass the collection basket which has caused a significant decline in the support needed to run our parish. Therefore the parish has expanded its virtual giving capabilities. Please consider using one of these other options during the COVID-19 “Stay-at-Home” period. These options make processing offertory easier and more secure as the parish staff is working from home. 

  1. Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) – MOST RECOMMENDED – For reoccurring gifts, you can set up automatic debit to one’s bank account or charges to one’s credit card. Please fill out this Offertory Commitment Form to set up recurring payments.  
  2. One-Time Online Donation If you normally donate by envelopes or the basket, we have set up a link to donate online with a one-time donation by credit card. Click here to complete the form. You may use this link as often as you like.
  3. Text-to-Give Another option is through our new TEXT-to-GIVE number.  Donate simply by texting SFDS to 740.240.6093. You can also use this in place of your normal offertory basket giving.
  4. US Mail If you would like to continue using your envelopes, please mail your contribution to the parish office at 40 Granville Street, Newark, OH 43055. Checks are preferred as cash is not a safe or secure way to fulfill your offertory through the mail.
