God willed creation as a gift addressed to men and women, an inheritance destined for and entrusted to them.
Catechism of the Catholic Church, #299
Each fall we invite our parishioners to prayerfully reflect on the gift of treasure that they are able to share with Our Lady of Perpetual Help. The quality of our liturgies, parish programs, ministries, facilities, and outreach to the needy is determined by the support we receive from you.
Planned Offertory Program
While your generosity is deeply appreciated in any amount and at any time, a planned giving schedule greatly enhances our parish's ability to budget its programs and prepare for the future. Like the act of creation that it reflects, stewardship is most effective when it follows a plan.
There are several ways to give:
- Monthly or weekly envelope contribution
- Online giving weekly, monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, or annually via e-check, debit card or credit card withdrawals.
Online giving not only allows you to have a donor account, manage your gifts, and view donation history anytime, but it also cuts down on parish staff time of processing checks and counting cash. It also helps us to budget the projected income from donations for the year, and keep all of your giving records in one place.
We process our online donations through GiveCentral. This is an online giving tool that offers you flexible options for making donations to everything from Sunday collections to special events in the parish. GiveCentral is a completely secure online giving system that allows you to plan your giving as you wish. Here is a short video about how to use GiveCentral: https://youtu.be/MGtyHQSDMXE

OLPH is a wonderful place because of all the parishioners who answer God's call and generously share their gifts with the parish. Thank you for taking seriously the joy and responsibility of membership in our faith community!
