Faith Direct

Dear STA Family,

Many of you are aware and take advantage of the convenience of electronic giving to support our parish and the important ministries we provide. We want to make it easier for you and all our parishioners to continue giving and so, have upgraded to a more streamlined online provider for our eGiving needs through Faith Direct. For those of you who have yet to join us in giving online, I strongly encourage you to do so. Here’s why:

The parish benefits greatly in eGiving as it allows us to more effectively plan our programs and services. Even better, Faith Direct comes at a cost savings to the parish compared to other systems or providers available!

Faith Direct enables parishioners to make your Church contributions through either direct debit from your checking/savings account or through your credit/debit card. No more writing checks or searching for envelopes on the way out the door. And, if you are out of town or unable to attend Mass at Saint Thomas, we still receive your weekly contribution! Now you can apply the convenience of direct debit to your parish offerings in much the same way you may currently use it to make your mortgage, car or tuition payments.

Beginning this month...
