Doesn’t the Church still need my weekly offering/envelope?

During this crisis, our Church will feel significant financial impact of not taking in our normal revenue, but still realizing our normal expenses.  We are ever so thankful for those families who are still able an willing to donate during this time.  We will be accepting weekly envelopes/offerings in our Parish Office during business hours, in our lock box outside our parish office door, during our private prayer hours, through the mail service and/or on-line.
