Ways to Give
The most traditional form of donation to St. Helena Catholic Church is from our weekly plate collection and Christmas and Easter collections. The generous contributions of parishioners and guests at St. Helena Catholic provide funds to cover much of the operating costs of the parish. The budgetary needs include such things as church supplies and utilities, ministries serving parishioners and the greater community, employee salaries, benefits, religious education for children and adults, general maintenance, charitable outreach, and parish support of persons in need. Donation envelopes (available from the rectory office Monday through Friday) or checks may be deposited into the collection basket at Masses or mailed to our office. The best form of ongoing stewardship is electronic giving which is detailed below.
St. Helena Catholic Church offers its parishioners the opportunity to make both recurring and one-time contributions automatically through its electronic giving program. You, the donor, have completed control over the amount of the donation, its frequency and how it will be paid. You will also have a detailed account of your contributions with no more check writing. The contribution that you establish will be funded by a charge to your credit card (Visa or MasterCard only) or bank account.
Once registered you will designate a credit card or bank account to be used for your donation(s) and set the fund or funds to which you wish to donate and the amount and frequency of the donation. In addition to regular plate donations, other fund options are Easter, Christmas and any or all of the 2nd collections. You will be able to change, suspend or terminate any of the donations you may establish at any time.
Please feel free to call our parish office if you have any question or encounter any difficulties in opening your account at 707-963-1228 ext. 15
