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 You designate a specific amount of money to be automatically withdrawn from your bank account on a monthly basis on a pre-determined date.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

Update  --  July 28, 2019

Thank you all for your increased interest and support for the work on Capital Improvements of SMHC buildings and grounds. Occasionally the Council will share information on the progress and plans for improvements specific to the financial needs for these efforts. We welcome your thoughtful input and engagement. Current updates include:


1.  The HVAC at Holy Cross has been successfully installed and helping parishioners have a "cool" feeling these very hot days.  Thank you all for helping to make this a reality!


2. As mentioned in the June 16 & 23 bulletin, second collections will begin once per month that will be specifically designated for Capital Improvements. Updates on the balance funds secured will be listed in the bulletin.


Thank you for your prayerful and generous investments in your parish.
