As many around the world struggle with the Coronavirus, St. Mary has not been immune to the effects caused by these recent events. The directive from Bishop Oscar Cantú to suspend all Masses was an important step in helping slow the spread of the virus. This decision was not made lightly. It was made from concern for the common good and care of the vulnerable in our community. This important step will seriously impact in our weekly collection. Like most parishes, 90% of our revenue comes from the generous support of our faith community. This generosity supports the basic operations (payroll, utilities, maintenance, etc.) and ministries of our church.
This is a good time to remind you that we offer the option for giving electronically in a safe and secure way. Your online offertory can be customized by you. The frequency of how you want to give (weekly, monthly, quarterly, etc.) and the type of gift (debit, credit, EFT, etc.) is up to you.
Please feel free to contact the parish office if you have any questions on our online offertory. If you don’t wish to give online, please remember to mail in your weekly offertory gift. We thank you for your continued support of our parish community.
Credit Card or Virtual Check/EFT
If you cannot give online or prefer to send checks, please mail your offertory envelops to our office. Checks should be made payable to St. Mary Parish and mail your check to St Mary Parish, 11 First St., Gilroy, CA 95020.
