We Need Your Help

People like you make up our parish. Our history shows that our parish was built by a hardworking and dedicated community. Let us share the gifts that we have received and continue this spirit of unity by committing to do two of three things: 
  1. Increase your weekly contribution following the suggested guidelines below. 
  2. Use the envelope system, which means not only receiving the envelopes, but also using them to submit your new weekly contribution. Know that all personal information on these envelopes is kept confidential 
  3. Use the electronic giving system to give your weekly contributions. You can enroll by going to www.stclaresi.com/giving 
These small steps will make a considerable impact on our parish community!

THANK YOU to all the parishioners who have already said yes to our future! Please continue your faith, devotion, and increased giving.

Our Parish is Our Home

Help maintain it and the services and ministries it offers by considering increasing your weekly contribution to the Sunday collection. We are a family, and together we can help the parish and its future. 

Help our parish by filling out a special campaign envelope to increase your giving, and continue that increase over the next 52 weeks. 

We are asking you to think about what you can afford to give to our parish. A general guideline for donations to your parish is 5% of your family’s total income. Many people find that their total annual gifts are 1% or less. What percentage of your income can you afford to give?

We Need Your Help

We need your help. We are asking everyone to consider increasing their weekly offering to the parish. 

It is vital that everyone participates in this program. We need your help to better serve and continue offering the programs that have become the trademark of our parish. 

What We Hope to Accomplish:
  1. Increase awareness of our needs. 
  2. Augment our income to offset expenses. 
  3. Help us plan and project our budget more accurately. 
  4. Incorporate Electronic Giving in our parish. 
How Can You Help?

Begin to use or continue using the envelope system. This will allow us to better know our parishioners.
Commit to increasing your offering for the next 52 weeks. This will help us keep track of our income and help us better plan for the future of our parish.
Once you have decided to increase, please use the special offertory envelope.

Online Giving (AKA Electronic Giving) is an alternate means of support for our parish instead of envelopes. In lieu of weekly collections, the Online Givers have their offering automatically or manually transferred from their checking, savings, or credit card account. There is NO cost to the participant to participate in the program.


Please click here to sign up or contact Mrs. Gerri Smith (gsmith@stclaresi.com) in the rectory to discuss electronic giving.
