Being on vacation is the greatest feeling. You can wake up naturally, go to bed at a later hour and conduct your day however you like. Then midweek you are all out of sorts. What day is it? Is it too early for lunch? What are we doing tomorrow? Sometimes you just need your back work and school routine to drive you and there is nothing wrong with that!
That was a fast school year! All of a sudden it’s graduation ceremonies, parties and school transitions. It is a lot on your family’s plate. Once all of it is over with, you have eight weeks of warm weather in front of you. How are you to occupy your younger ones until the first day of school, or until you have your summer vacation? It’s easy – Summer Religious Education.
It’s already the end of May. Mother’s Day has passed, and so has Memorial Day weekend! By this time, the kids have a countdown to the last day of school, and parents are finalizing their vacations and their kid’s summer activities. What’s left to do? Remember your parish during the crazy days of summer.

You walk into the kitchen. Dirty dishes are piled high in the sink. Someone spilled milk on the floor and didn’t clean it up. The trash is over flowing. The recyclables have not been taken out. And no one has even thought about what’s for dinner tonight. This is just the tip of the iceberg. It’s that time of year where life is throwing a curveball at you from every direction. We want to help throw one less in your direction.
After much discussion, we decided to write two different blogs this week about Religious Education. We already informed you as to why you should send your child(ren) to Religious Education; now we thought we’d let you know how easy it is to sign up! Since we want to cater to both our parishes and parents, we thought we’d do a blog focusing on each individual! Look out for a part 2 for parishes later on this week!
It’s that time of the year again where we start thinking about next year school’s tuition. There are numerous sites out there in which you can pay your tuition online. They all seem pretty similar don’t they; generic guarantees and making you just another number in their books. Don’t you want something different this coming school year? Parish Giving is that something different.
Why give online? This seems to be a question we are asked quite often here at Parish Giving. The concept of giving your weekly church offering online seems to be a concept not many parishioners and parish administrators are completely onboard with. But why? Let’s examine all of what you do online, and how much easier it has made your life. Perhaps you will then view Parish Giving differently.
Does the thought of another year of Religious Education forms send a shiver down your spine? If it does, then you have come to the correct place! Here at Parish Giving, we want to make the process of Religious Education registration easier on the church and its parishioners.
It’s 8:30am. The Parish Giving office phone rings. The person on the other end of the phone expects an automated machine directory telling them to press 1 for Person A, or press 2 for Person B. Instead, they are greeted by a friendly voice saying, “Parish Giving”. The caller shocked and surprised as the receptionist repeats, “This is Parish Giving”. Now the person on the end of the phone feels at ease and asks to speak to someone about their account. Real people talking to real people; a concept we believe in here at Parish Giving that sets us apart from others.
When you see the name Parish Giving, you automatically think all we are about is your weekly offering toward your parish. Well here is a surprise – it is so much more than that! Parish Giving is about giving back to your community and to your parish. Your weekly church offering is just skimming the surface of what we are about!
