The Cheerful Giver


"The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver." 


                   2 Corinthians 9:6-7



Online Giving through GivePlus+

We are pleased to announce to the members and supporters of St Alphonsus Parish a new way to support the church – via online giving. We invite you to join our new electronic giving program to automate your offerings and view your complete online giving history all at your own convenience.  


To get started simply follow these easy steps:


Click the Create Profile button, then follow the onscreen instructions to create an online profile and to schedule your contributions.  Your contributions can be ongoing – weekly, every other week, monthly, or can be one-time

donations.  They can be direct from your checking account (ACH) or charged to a credit or debit card.  There are options for selecting where you would like your contribution to go - to our general operating fund or to the New Parish Hall Building fund.  And you can choose to include the processing fees in your contribution as well.  For an ACH transaction the fee is $ .35.  For a debit/credit card transaction, the fee is 2.65%.  For example, if you set up a weekly contribution of $25.00, the credit card fee would be $ .66.  This does not cover all the fees but will definitely help us out.  You will receive an email confirming your donation, and one will be sent to the parish for posting to your contribution record.  


If you have any questions or issues, please call the Office and Susan will be glad to help you.  Thank you for your generosity to our little parish!


From Bishop Medley and Fr. Anthoni (3/24/2020)

Celebration of public masses and public gatherings are suspended until further notice.  

We will have Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament on Sunday, March 29th from 8-9 am for individual prayer, Stations or the Rosary (maintaining appropriate social distancing.)

The celebrations of Holy Week and Easter cannot be transferred to another date.  They may be celebrated by Fr. Anthoni withhout a congregation.  We will provide a list of masses that will be livestreamed closer to Holy Week. 

The rite of Christian initiation can be celebrated outside the usual times, thus it will be delayed until the Sunday Eucharist is resumed.  

Our church bells will ring daily at 10 am such that we can pause and offer our prayer for an end to the coronavirus pandemic.
