When paper checks are disappearing as method of payment we would like to move the parish into the digital age by offering you the convenience of electronic/online giving. This method enables you with the freedom to give anytime, anywhere with the click of a button.
Just as most of you pay utility bills automatically each month, the electronic giving will enable you to support your parish without worrying about writing a check every time. This would be helpful especially for those traveling.
Here are the two options:
1) Online Bill Pay
Using your Online Bill Pay service at any Bank, you can set up OLQU as a payee. Use your envelope number as your account number. You can then program your contributions one at a time or put them on auto pay. You can put a collection notation (1st collection, 2nd collection, SVDP etc.) in the Memo field.
The Church bank account number is not necessary for this type of transaction.
The bank will then mail a check directly to the Church. There is typically no charge to use this service. However, all banks are different; so check with your bank regarding its online banking policie
2) Direct transfer. (Only for the Members of the Redstone Federal Credit Union)
By using the Redstone Online Banking service, you can transfer your donation directly into the Church checking account.
Go into your online service.
Click on “Transfer to another member” button.
Insert Transfer amount: The $$$ you want to donate.

We will be happy to walk you through setting up your online banking. Please call during the parish office hours (Tuesday through Friday 9am to 3pm. 256-852-0788) with any questions.
