Questions and Answers
Who will be asked to support this appeal?
We plan to ask each member of our parish family to consider making a sacrificial increase in their regular support for our parish. We hope each parishioner will play a conscientious role in shaping the future of St. Leo the Great.
By how much should I increase my offering?”
Only you can decide what is appropriate for you and your family. A lasting and meaningful increase by all of the faithful of our parish will make a tremendous impact on St. Leo the Great.
What happens if I miss Mass and am unable to bring my offering?”
The church depends upon the consistent, regular offerings of all its members. If you are unable to attend Mass, it would be very helpful if you could “make-up” your offering at the next Mass that you are able to attend.
What if I cannot increase my offering at this time?”
While it is our hope that this appeal will have a significant, positive impact on our offertory, I am particularly interested in hearing from 100% of our parish. Not everyone is in a position to increase their support. However, everyone can respond to the appeal. Perhaps there is something that we can do to assist you and your family. I ask everyone to pray for the success of this appeal.
When should I start contributing at my new level?
Please start contributing at your new level immediately. Please try and maintain this new amount as your regular giving level each time you make an offering.
Is Electronic Giving available for our offering?
Yes. You may select a credit card option through our website or we offer a direct debit program through your bank account (for those who like to pay their regular bills in this manner). Please check the appropriate box on the commitment card this weekend.
