Our Lady of the Most Blessed Sacrament Parish
Online Giving Program
Our Lady of the Most Blessed Sacrament Parish is pleased to announce that we now offer electronic giving as a way to automate your regular weekly offerings. Electronic giving is convenient for you and provides much-needed consistency for our parish. When travel, illness or other circumstances prevent you from attending Mass, this program will allow your offerings to continue on an uninterrupted basis.

The program starts on May 1, 2015.
You can register for the program in three different ways.
Look for the link on the parish web site. Click on the link to register and create a profile, user name and password. You are then able to donate to the envelope item of your choice on a weekly, monthly or one time basis as appropriate. You can select the date of the donation also.
You can also use your smart phone to register for the program.
Next week’s bulletin will contain a QR square that can be scanned to enter the registration page and enter the same information as in number 1. You might need to download a QR Code Reader before beginning this method.
If you are not comfortable with either of these methods you can request a form from the parish office. Fill out the form and the parish staff will enter the information on line for you
Changes can be made to your donation preferences at any time. Second collections and Holy Day donations can be set up in advance by indicating the date of the donation or they can be set up as you prefer. You have complete control. You can also view and print a payment history at any time.
