From time to time, I ask you all to think about what you can give to the church. It is an important question, which requires us all to reflect on the blessings given to each of us. As you know
St. George is able to serve this community only through the support of our parishioners. Our ability to continue
our mission is directly related to the generosity of this congregation. It is also important that we at
St. George learn how to accept your gifts in different ways. Not every donation comes in an envelope on Sunday. We realize that today, more and more of you would prefer to make your contributions through your checking account or credit card. I am happy to write that you now have that choice.
You are NOW able to use GiveCentral. It is a website approved by the archdiocese and our finance council for making contributions electronically. This website is safe, secure, and a paperless way to make your contribution. It was designed specifically for Catholic churches in Chicago and other churches have already found success with it. Thank you for your continued support of our ministry through your weekly sacrificial offering. God bless you throughout 2015!
