Ways to Give

Giving is an expression of our discipleship. As disciples of Jesus Christ, we are called to a spirit of generosity. As grateful stewards, we realize that all we are and all we have is gift. And with blessings comes responsibility. We share a common belief that we should return to the Lord a generous portion of what God has given to us.

What is Faith Direct automated giving?

There are different ways to give, but Faith Direct is the innovative solution that allows you to support our parish using electronic funds transfer from either a credit/debit card or bank account. It is a hassle-free, simple solution for today’s busy families.

How does Faith Direct work?

Faith Direct is a secure system that works directly with your bank or credit/debit card–much the same as other direct payments you may have set up for utility bills or mortgage payments.

When do transactions take place?

Transactions take place once per month on the 4th or 15th (or the next business day.) The total amount of your donations for the current month will be processed in one monthly transaction.

Can I stop, increase, or decrease my payment at any time?

Yes, by calling Faith Direct at 1-866-507-8757 (toll free), by emailing info@faithdirect.net, or by logging in to your account online through www.faithdirect.net or through Faith Direct’s iPhone App. 

How does St. John the Baptist benefit from my participation with Faith Direct?

Our church will see a substantial increase in net revenue, a decrease in administrative costs, and a clearer picture of cash flow for our needs.  When you give electronically, we’re also able to decrease the amount spent on printing and postage for the paper collection envelopes.
