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 You designate a specific amount of money to be automatically withdrawn from your bank account on a monthly basis on a pre-determined date.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 Candy Zidon, 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: 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.

2023 Annual Diocesan Appeal (ADA) 

This Appeal ensures we can continue to Sow God’s Spirit in Southwest Iowa. The ADA helps us welcome people into communion, prepare disciples for the domestic church, draw our young people deeper into their faith and cultivate a culture of servant leadership. Each household received information and a contribution card from Bishop Joenson. We need every families help to meet our assessment of $55,196. Each prayer and every gift, regardless of the size, is vital to the success of the Appeal. Thank you for your generosity and kindness!


Contribution cards are located at St. Mary and Holy Cross and can be mailed to the parish office or placed in the collection basket. If paying by check, please make it out to Diocese of Des Moines. You can also donate online at; and choose our parish from the “Designate” dropdown.
