Ways to Donate

Online
Make a donation online with your credit card by clicking the Donate Now button below:

Donate Now Through CanadaHelps.org!

It's easy, secure and convenient. You'll have the option of making your contributions as one-time donations or as repeating donations:

Option 1: One-time Donations
Your credit card will be charged the full amount of the one-time donation. You'll automatically receive an official tax receipt via email.

Option 2: Repeating Donations
Your credit card will be automatically charged a monthly donation amount. You choose the monthly donation amount and the number of months that you want to donate.

The online donation system is made possible by CanadaHelps. CanadaHelps is a non-profit organization that helps other Canadian non-profit organizations handle secure online transactions. CanadaHelps takes 3.5% off the donation amount to handle credit card transaction costs, which leaves the remainder of the donation amount to the recipient organization.

Pledge card
Donate by filling in a pledge card. Pledges can be made using cash, cheque or credit card. Giving is made especially easy through monthly credit card donations. Completed pledge cards can be mailed to the parish office or dropped into a collection basket during Mass. Tax receipts will be mailed to you.
