Although we are in the midst of summer, Fall will be here before we know it. High school sports camps will be starting, you will be able to hear the marching band practicing, and you will be dreaming of pumpkin patches and football games. On top of all that, many parishes, youth groups and teen organizations will be wanting to hold virtual and in-person events. Well Parish Giving is all about helping your parish with one less task! Here are some of the forms that we are able to create for your fall festivities!
There is a certain buzz in the air right now. Bees are buzzing, birds are chirping, and more people are outdoors enjoying the beautiful sunshine. Also, with things becoming more normal each day, many of us are going back to our old routines. We have golfing tournaments, Mother’s Day Raffle, Fish Fries and much more! Well did you know what we are still offering our online forms for your parishes? It is true! Here are some of the current forms we are working on, and how to best advertise your events!
Now is the time for Online Giving.
For close to twenty years, parishes have found online giving to be a useful tool to supplement their Offertory Collection. Forward thinking parishes employed this tool to safeguard against the disruption to the weekly collection due to illness, vacations, and inclement weather. Today we see the value of using online giving because of Covid-19.
How did it get to be the latter half of October? Doesn’t it seem that we just had off for Labor Day and prepping the kids for the first day of school?! Now we are in the swing of things and in autopilot mode. We are also readying ourselves for the holidays! In a previous blog we discussed a holiday checklist. Now it’s time to discuss even more ways to prep for the holidays and how Parish Giving can help! Enjoy!
First, we just want to thank all the parishes that have been with us through the years. To think, Parish Giving has been successful for eleven years now. We started as a way for parishioners to pay their weekly offering online and has become much more than that. This blog is for those of you who have been with us for much of the way. We thought we’d share what we offer now as opposed to the very beginning!
Derry Girls is anything but a one hit wonder. The first season is an original piece of art that can be compared to a masterpiece. Season two has not only lived up to the hype, but has surpassed many expectations. The quick-whit and escapades continue to make us laugh and wish there were more than six episodes in each season. Let’s see what trouble the girls and the wee English fella get into this season!
As you can remember, we left off our last blog discussing our online forms. They were our ticket item to create more of a buzz when it came to communicating with our parishes. No longer were we just a weekly offering site; we are now something more meaningful.
Can you believe it’s been a year and a half since we started this blog, and we have yet to write about how it all began? The question why was Parish Giving created is much more than a one word answer – it’s a story that should be shared with our followers and users. This is how it all started.
The first full week of May brings Teacher Appreciation Week. Since it’s towards the end of the school year, it is a great time to reminisce and think about all the things that your teacher or teachers have done for their students. It does not matter if they are their grade school teacher, religious education teacher or an extra-curricular teacher. They all bring something to the classroom.
As you probably remember, we have a 10 Really Cool Reasons to use Parish Giving blog already. We thought why not update it to make it more relevant for our readers! Over the past year we’ve grown (but just the right amount!) and expanded in our marketplace! Take a look and see what’s new!
Happy First Day of Spring! Our geese friends Jay and P. are outside honking, we’re taking our allergy medicine each morning because the trees are starting to blossom, and the grey winter sky is starting to turn into a happy blue! Finally, spring is here! That means it is time to spring into savings with Parish Giving! Large Parish, small parish, it doesn’t matter! You can pick and choose online solutions that work for you.

The holiday’s; it’s a time of the year most of us look forward to. Big dinners, the house is warmed with a turkey in the oven, and your family is gathered around the dining room table giving thanks for their blessings of the past year. Unfortunately, not everyone is able to provide that hot turkey, delicious pies, or even a warm home. That is where Food Banks, Soup Kitchens, and St. Vincent de Paul society comes in. You are provided with either the essentials to help you with your family meal, or a place to eat and enjoy conversation with others in your community.
