Our Feast Day, GOOD SHEPHERD SUNDAY, is May 12th. Mark your calendars for our annual church community POTLUCK celebration after the 12 pm mass, in the gym. Bring the whole family and your friends!

Electronic Donations

A Secure & Convenient Way to Contribute to Your Parish

Electronic donations are a great way to support Good Shepherd. No more envelopes to remember to bring to Mass, no check to write and when you go on vacation, your support continues.  Additionally, you may select from many of the offerings to which Good Shepherd supports throughout the year.

Electronic Donations to Good Shepherd Church are processed through an application named ConnectNow Giving, a service of ParishSoft.  You can submit one-time contributions without signing up, using Visa, MasterCard, Discover Card, American Express, your bank debit or through e-check.  To make reoccurring contributions, please complete a quick registration process.

Frequently Asked Questions

 

Can I use my regular checking or savings account?

How are my contributions automatically deducted from my account?

When you create your account, you enter your credit card and/or bank account information and then specify the amount you wish to contribute. Your contribution will be transferred from your account to the church bank account.

When will my contribution be deducted from my account?

The Online Giving system provides you the ability to select the date you would like your contribution to occur. You will receive an email notification prior to each contribution date, and your account will be debited on the date you specify.

If I do not write checks, then how do I balance my checkbook?

You will receive an email notification prior to each contribution date and also a confirmation email that your gift has been processed. These reminders will help you to remember to record the gift in your check register on the appropriate date. Electronic contributions are also recorded on your bank statement and in your Online Giving reports.

Can I contribute different amounts to different offerings? Can they be withdrawn at different times? Can I use different accounts for the contributions?

The system provides you the capability to give different amounts to different offerings at different times. For example, assuming your parish has set up these gift offerings, you are able to give your regular weekly offering on the 1st of the month and your flower gift on the 10th of the month. You are able to use any number of bank and/or credit card accounts for your offerings.

What if I change bank accounts?

Simply login and update your bank account information in your profile.

What if I want to stop using Online Giving?

You can cancel your authorization by deleting your credit card and/or bank account information along with your donation dates.
