What is Automated Giving?
An alternate way to support Saint Robert's instead of weekly envelopes. In lieu of weekly collections, the ParishPay program will collect monthly contributions from your checking, savings, or credit card account. There is NO cost to participate in the program.
What are the benefits to me?
- Allows you to plan your giving, in the same way you budget your other financial commitments.
- You no longer have to be concerned about catching-up on missed offertory donations when you miss a Mass because you are out of town, on vacation, ill, etc.
- You can easily adjust the amount of your automated contribution (up or down) through the Parish Office or do it yourself via secure website access.
- You no longer need to write a check every week.
How does it relate to the use of the weekly envelopes?
If you choose to participate in the ParishPay program, this will replace your weekly envelopes.
I feel uncomfortable not having something to physically drop into the collection basket. What should I do?
Special donation slips are available for those enrolled in the ParishPay program to be dropped into the collection basket, should you wish.
What about Special Collections?
You can specify your giving level for special collections and special celebration dates (e.g., Christmas, Easter) when you join the ParishPay program, or anytime thereafter.
How do I enroll?
By envelope: complete the enrollment form (available in the Parish Office) and return it to the Parish Office or drop it in the collection basket at Mass.
Online: go to www.parishpay.com, locate St. Robert's parish, and complete the enrollment form.
By phone: call the toll free number 1-866-727-4741 and a ParishPay representative will assist you directly.
