A Note about Contributing to Our Offertory During COVID-19
We understand that these are very difficult times for all of our families. Our staff continues to pray for all of you. If you are not able to attend Mass in person but are still inclined to send an offering, please know that staff is here each Monday morning to receive and process any contributions which have arrived via US mail the prior week. Please do not visit the office to bring your offertory, but we appreciate any mailed contributions. Our mailing address is: St. John Neumann Church, 9633 E. State Route 37, Sunbury, Ohio, 43074. We are so grateful for your contributions, but more than this, we are looking forward to the time when we can ALL be together to celebrate Mass in the church as one community of faith. May God continue to bless each and every one of you.
We continue to accept pledges for our Annual Offertory program throughout the year. The parish needs faithful givers to support our daily operations. Your regular giving through the offertory will fund all our ministries and outreaches, religious education and spiritual programs, music at the Masses, staff salaries and benefits, monthly utilities, normal building & grounds maintenance, insurance premiums and other typical ministry and administrative costs. In short, it is your financial commitment that will help us keep our doors open and our parish operating from day to day.
As you reflect upon the amount, based on your blessings and income, also consider the way you financially support our parish. Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) is a safe and convenient option to giving through envelopes or cash in the offertory basket. EFT makes it easier for parishioners to support our parish on a regular basis, while assuring the parish of a more consistent offertory income. This helps us to better forecast, implement, track and adhere to our budget. Maybe try EFT for one year, on a trial basis. If you don’t like it, you can cancel at any time and go back to your regular method of giving. Whether you choose EFT or our envelope system as your means to support our parish, I ask that you make a pledge to our parish for this coming year using the attached Offertory Commitment Form.
