[For larger column space] Online giving is now available! (190 words)
Between demanding schedules, traveling, or just trying to get out the door on time for Mass, it can be challenging to tithe on a regular basis as God calls us to do. Plus, for many families, the parish is one of the last places where you still have to use a checkbook or cash.

[Parish Name] is excited to offer online giving for families to easily give one-time as well as recurring gifts! Simply make a secure donation via electronic check or debit/credit card by visiting [parishname.org/give]. And if you choose to set up a recurring gift, you will be prompted by email to create your own online donor account to manage your gifts. It’s as easy as online shopping or banking!

Provided by eCatholic, the same company that hosts the parish's website, this online giving service has already been a proven success for many parishes, schools, and dioceses. And it makes for safer record-keeping, faster processing, and more efficient communication for the parish office.
