Consider giving online this year...

Thank you to all who continue to give generously to the Annual Catholic Appeal as well as through your prayers and participation in ministry and mission of St. Cecilia Parish. Your efforts make so many things possible for our parish and the wider church throughout Western Washington. We want to ask you this year to please consider giving your Annual Appeal gift online. We know many of you are still comfortable writing a check or inserting cash in the envelope for us to send to the Archdiocese and we greatly appreciate your generosity and consistency over many years. As we strive to make giving to the Annual Appeal more secure, safer, faster, and efficient for our staff, we want you to consider making your gift online for the following reasons:

  • Most important: Because the ACA is processed centrally at the Archdiocese, any envelopes
    received here at the parish (cash, check, or credit card) will be recorded at the parish and then sent via U.S. Postal service to the Archdiocese. Eliminating the need to send checks and cash through the mail is safer, timely (avoids the USPS staffing shortages), consistent and just better business in this era of electronic processing
  • Giving a gift online is safe and secure. Online vendors go to great lengths to ensure their online giving platform is fully secure and compliant with industry standards.
  • Giving online saves an incredible amount of time here at St. Cecilia Parish for our staff and
    volunteers. Online gifts go directly to the Archdiocese site where they can be processed faster,
    more efficiently and with less errors (particularly handwriting errors that need clarification). The Archdiocese uploads a detailed report every week for any donations that were marked directly for our parish (people giving online select their parish from a drop-down screen). This report is then used to record your gift here at the parish.
  • Giving a gift online is better for the environment. Being good stewards of our resources is one
    of the fundamental aspects of being a disciple.
