It is an opportunity to have your weekly contribution conveniently transferred from your checking or savings account into the church's bank account.
Today, people are willing to have money transferred from their bank accounts to pay mortgages, insurance premiums, utility bills, fitness memberships and more. The reasons are convenience and the certainty that a payment won't be skipped. The Cathedral e- Giving program benefits those who want to ensure their contribution are received faithfully and consistently without the hassle of writing checks and remembering envelopes.
No, the church will cover the small monthly service and transaction fees.
Recurring gifts can be set up to be debited from accounts weekly, once a month, or twice a month. Additional gifts may be placed in the offering plates on Sundays or given online directly through our website: www.spicathedral.org/give-online.
Yes, you may increase, decrease, or suspend your giving at any time by calling the Parish at 217-522-3342 ext 133.
- Parishioners who work on weekends, go away on vacation, are out of town on Sundays or are no longer able to attend church due to health reasons can stay financially connected to the church.
