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 You designate a specific amount of money to be automatically withdrawn from your bank account on a monthly basis on a pre-determined date.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 .
End of Year Statements
To receive your year end statement, please email Candy, firstname.lastname@example.org or contact the office, 515-367-2685, with a request to email or print/mail your statement. In an effort to save money, we do not automatically mail out these statements to everyone.
Children are encouraged to take a tithe packet located on the table, and on the paper provided, write their name by the number of the packet they have taken. Thank you!

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. Use the QR Code below or use this 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) to make your Tithe, Building Fund and/or Food Pantry donation. The Foundation sends gift receipts.
2024 Annual Diocesan Appeal (ADA)
This Appeal gives us the opportunity to Cultivate Connections in Christ and support the ministries and services from which you and our parish benefit. Every gift, regardless of the size, is vital to the success of the Appeal. Please prayerfully consider how you can support our Diocese. All households have received a mailing from Bishop Joensen asking you to give a gift to the ADA. Contribution cards can be mailed to the parish office or dropped in the collection basket. If donating by check, please make payable to the Diocese of Des Moines. You can also donate online at https://www.dmdiocese.org/giving; choose our parish from the “Designate” dropdown. Our assessment is $51,458.
