If you currently use automatic withdrawal for your tithing, thank you! Might you be able to increase your monthly amount? 

If you don’t use automatic withdrawal from your bank for tithing, please consider it.  This method is a simple and practical way to consistently tithe. You designate a specific amount of money to be automatically withdrawn from your bank account on a monthly basis on a pre-determined date. Questions? Contact Sarah Baumberger, parish bookkeeper by email .

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: 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.


2020 Annual Diocesan Appeal 

This Appeal gives us the opportunity to act together as a Diocesan family and support programs and services no single individual or parish can offer. Information and a pledge card are being sent to each household. Please prayerfully consider what you are able to give and mail your pledge directly to the Diocese. Every gift, regardless of size, is vital to the success of the Appeal. Please join us to continue God’s work of spirituality, charity and education. Thank you.
