We spent 5 glorious but busy days in Rome. I celebrated Mass at the alter an tomb of St. Pope John Paul ll. Then two peaceful days in beautiful Assisi. Yesterday was a full day of travel, bus trip back to Rome, fly to Lisbon, bus trip to hotel near Fatima. Today we go to Fatima to visit apparition sites, and homes of 3 children. Think of you and pray for you all every day! With Love and Prayers, Fr. LeRoy

Online Giving

A Secure & Convenient Way to Contribute

to Our Lady of the Lake

 

OLG is a safe, secure internet program that allows parishioners to make electronic contributions to the parish. You determine how much to donate and how often to donate. And since the program is directly linked to a checking account, savings account, or credit card, there's no need to write checks or hunt down cash and envelopes each week.

 

Why is it worth my while to sign up for Online Giving?

  • No need to hassle with checks or cash
  • 24/7 web-based access
  • 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
  • Accuracy in record-keeping is optimized by minimizing chances for human error
  • No need to share bank account information because you enter it directly into the Online Giving secure site
  • Allows you to give even if you are unable to attend parish services due to illness, weather, or travel
  • Contribution amount is easily adjusted as needed

 

 

Who can participate in Online Giving?

Anyone with a checking account, savings account, or credit card can participate.

  • If you have internet access and email, you can set up the OLG account yourself. Parishioners who sign up this way have 24/7 access to their account, will be reminded of special collections each quarter, and can adjust their contributions at any time.
  • If you do not have internet access and email, you can still take advantage of this program by submitting an Authorization Form to the parish office. The form allows us to set up the account according to your directions without you having to bother with the setup process. You still have full authority over contributions and simply use the parish office as your "secretary". Since the form contains private financial information, please take appropriate precautions when submitting it to the parish office.

When does the program take the money out?

You get to decide. Contributions can be made one-time-only, weekly, biweekly, monthly, quarterly, twice a year, or annually. If your scheduled contribution falls on the weekend or a bank holiday, it will be processed the next business day.

 

Where does the money go?

You get to decide. The Online Giving program lists all of the "open funds" to which you can donate. While "Sunday Offering" is always available, other collections are only available for a limited time (like Retirement Fund for the Religious). You get to specify which collections you participate in, just as you've always done by using different envelopes.

 

What happens to my paper envelopes?

You get to decide. Some parishioners prefer to manage all of their donations online, so they skip the envelopes completely. Others prefer to keep their envelopes just for special collections. Others keep the envelopes and mark the "I give online" check box; that way they can still participate physically in the offertory at Mass. However you'd like to manage envelopes is fine by us - just let us know what you prefer.

 

What if I have other questions or have difficulty with the program?

We're happy to help! Contact Pat Jensen at the parish office, or try the resources listed on the left side of this page.
