Support Our Parish
Please note that we are currently using the donation slots in the back vestibule of church for donations instead of our usual collections by ushers. If you usually contribute at Mass, but are not able to attend Mass at this time, we’d ask that you mail your envelope to the office. Alternatively, we suggest that you take advantage of one of our easy electronic methods by contributing through electronic bank transfer using this form, by PayPal or credit card or by the Venmo app @SMV_EG. We appreciate that these are challenging and uncertain times and your continued support of our parish is so very appreciated.
Know that we are praying for all of our parishioners daily, and please pray for our parish, that we are able to come through this crisis ready to continue to provide for all of our spiritual needs.
