jpII-website Thank you for making it possible to maintain our properties by your generosity.  Every dollar helps us to move forward to meet the needs of our growing community of faith as we make improvements and pay down the existing loan on our Saint John Paul II Catechetical Center. St. Mark’s invites you to consider our new electronic giving program as a way to automate your gifts to our the Building Fund through the secure link on our Web site. You can pick the fund(s) you want to split your donation into and choose a one time transaction or set it up as a recurring transaction. To use the On-line Giving option click on the lion logo below and you will be directly linked with Vanco Services. Electronic giving offers convenience for individual parish members and provides much-needed donation consistency for our parish. We anticipate that electronic giving will appeal to many church members—from longtime worshipers who will appreciate an alternative to frequent check writing to younger members and others who prefer to pay or donate by electronic means whenever possible. Direct Debit Giving is used to automatically transfer funds from your checking or savings account to St.Mark’s bank account. If you are already using direct debit to make mortgage and car payments or to pay utility bills, then you know how it works. An authorization form for giving by direct debit is enclosed. Credit & Debit Card Giving lets you make offerings automatically on a per-determined schedule using a credit or debit card. Today, many households use debit cards as a convenient alternative to checks or use credit cards in a responsible manner to manage a wide range of obligations. An authorization form forgiving by debit or credit card is enclosed. Online Giving lets you go to the church website at to make one-time donations or to set up a schedule of automatic donations. By setting up a password-protected profile, you will be able to log in at any time to make donations, change a recurring donation plan or view your personal giving history.

As you contemplate your future contributions and Sharing Your Blessings, please consider electronic giving.

“Everyone must give according to what he or she has inwardly decided; not grudgingly, for God loves a cheerful giver.  God can multiply his favors among you so that you will always have enough of everything and even surplus for good works.”
2 Cor. 9: 7-8
