A New Way to Tithe!
Our parish has been looking into offering online giving and we are currently able to offer this opportunity through the Catholic Foundation of Southwest Iowa. They have provided all parishes with a secure link: https://catholicfoundationiowa.org/make-a-donation/parishes-and-schools-relief/. Using the drop down menu, you can choose our parish (St. Mary/Holy Cross Parish - Elkhart) and make your donation. Contributions made through this platform will be treated as tithes to our parish. There are no fees associated with this, so ALL of your donation will go to our parish. The Foundation will send all gift acknowledgement letters.
