How does St. Norbert Parish use the money I donate?
Your pledge goes to pay for the day-to-day operating costs of St. Norbert Parish. In addition, your donations helps pay for our parish’s many programs, ministries and services that promote prayer and giving to others within and beyond the St. Norbert Parish community.
Why should I give electronically?
Electronic giving is easy and reduces administrative costs and paper. It also provides a predictable stream of income for St. Norbert Parish’s planning and bill paying.
How much should I give?
Only you can decide what is best for you and your family. Trusting that God will provide what you need, prayerfully consider the ways God has blessed you and consider taking another step in faith in your stewardship of sacrificial giving.
How do I leave my parish a gift in my will?
We invite you to download the document: Suggested Wording to Name Your Parish in Your Will or Trust.
Why do we collect for “Our Catholic Appeal”?
We are a vital part of the Archdiocese of Chicago. Our Bishop and his staff provide support in the form of leadership, services and training for ministry efforts carried out in our parish. As Stewards, we participate in “Our Catholic Appeal” to provide funds for these Archdiocesan activities and for charitable outreach to mission activities.
How are contributions automatically deducted from my account?
Once you create your account, the contribution amount specified will automatically be transferred from your bank account to the church’s bank account.
When will my contributions be deducted from my account?
Your electronic contribution will be debited on the date you specify.
If I do not write checks, how do I keep my checkbook balance straight?
Since your contribution is made at a pre-established time, you simply record it in your check register on the appropriate time. Electronic contributions are recorded for you on your balance statement as well as your online reports.
Without a canceled check how do I prove I made my contribution?
Your bank statement provides an itemized list of electronic transactions as well as your online report. The Parish will also send you a letter at the end of the year to confirm your donations.
Can I put different amounts in offerings and have all of them withdrawn at different times?
You can set up to contribute to different offerings at different times. However, you will have to do each one separately.
What if I change bank accounts?
Simply login and update your account information.
What if I try Online Giving and I don’t like it?
You can cancel your authorization by deleting your credit card and/or bank account information along with your donation dates.
