Saint Kateri Tekakwitha Parish has been blessed by the Lord in so many ways. We have four worship sites and an elementary school all within the town of Irondequoit, NY. Our parish has had several challenges over the last fifteen years and because of our Eucharistic celebration and the strong community of faith believers, we continue to have a strong presence in the lives of so many.
Finances are obviously very important to maintain our ministry, and we appreciate the generous support we receive from our parishioners. As Catholics, we recognize that all we have – our time, our talents, our resources, even our very lives – are gifts from God. We are called to be good stewards of all these gifts, investing them wisely and generously for the sake of God's kingdom. We know that our Lord's promise is to "Seek first His kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things shall be yours as well."
To help make it more convenient for you to financially support the parish, we have instituted an electronic payment option. This offers you the opportunity to make automatic financial contributions from your bank account to our parish community.
Online Giving is intended to enhance the traditional act of Sunday offering. You will continue to receive offering envelopes and the new envelopes have a box marked, "I have given electronically", allowing you to still participate in the Sunday Offering, if so desired. Please prayerfully consider Online Giving.
To begin Online Giving you will need certain information. If you are giving by Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) you will need your bank account and routing numbers, which can be found on the bottom of your check or you can obtain the routing number from your financial institution. If you are giving by a credit card, you will need the credit card information.
Once you sign up for an Online Giving account, set up your payment method and then make a new gift.
Within Online Giving it is possible to direct your offering to a specific purpose within the parish, such as Building Fund, Maintenance Fund, or general Sunday collection.
Online Giving is done via a separate secure web site and our staff will not have access to any of your banking information at any time. Online Giving may be set for Sunday or holy days, either recurring gifts (monthly, bi-weekly, weekly) or one time gifts (for holy days). Online Giving accounts and dates can be changed at any time. Email reminders let you know that the giving is about to be deducted from your account.
