On-line Giving-Decreased Mass attendance is already having -- and will continue to have -- a serious impact on parish income.  Unfortunately, our expenses do not significantly decrease.  Some people’s income may be affected by the restrictions currently in place because of the Coronavirus.  It's entirely understandable that their parish support may decrease.  Those who are able to continue supporting the parish are asked to do so even if they are unable to come to Mass. Offertory envelopes can be mailed to the parish office. If preferred, the link below can be used to make online contributions with a credit or debit card.
