- Easily schedule recurring donations to coincide with your pay period
- Credit card option allows you to take advantage of rewards such as air miles or cash bonuses
- No need to share bank account information because you enter it directly into the Online Giving secure site
- Contribution amount is easily adjusted as needed
- Option to remain anonymous
How Do I Get Started?
The User ID must be 6-12 characters and contain both letters and numbers (such as smith78). The password you choose must be 8-16 characters and contain letters, numbers and at least one symbol such as !, @, & or *. Do not enter information for the Registration Code as that is for account administrators only.
Personal & Address Information
The e-mail address must be unique. You cannot use the same e-mail address for two different User IDs. Be sure to enter information in all boxes marked with a red asterisk (*).
Fill in the code that is generated in the box at the bottom of your screen before clicking submit.
Click the "Submit" button
An e-mail will be sent to you confirming your new account and User ID.
Open the email that confirms your account and click on the link at the top of the e-mail. This will confirm your account so that you have access to log in. If the link does not work, copy and paste it into the browser's address bar. Once you click on this link, you will be taken back to the Parish Online Giving login page.
Enter your User ID and Password in the Existing User Login section and continue setting up your account. You will need to enter information for the bank account you wish to use for your donations. Once that information is entered, you can then set up donations for the Sunday Collection and the other funds listed on the site.
