Why you should participate in PAR (pre-authorized remittance).

Convenience. If you already have automatic payments from your account to an insurance company, mortgage or utility, then you understand the principle of PAR. Your offering is received by the parish automatically every month. You choose the amount which can be changed with a written request.

Continual support. When you are away or miss a Sunday your support of outreach ministries and programs continues. The parish benefits from a regular, dependable flow of contributions.

To register for PAR and for further information contact Debra Harpley at or leave a message at the church.
