"We use the Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) because it is convenient, no check writing and is automatically charged to our credit card when we are out of town.  Additionally, the credit card gives us a cash back rewards."  Marilyn & Michael Randall

“It just gave my family one less thing to remember.  No more searching for envelopes, no more discerning how much to give only to find a lack of currency or wrong denomination of currency in my wallet.  I found that I was giving half to administration and half to a social ministry anyway, so why not just make it automatic.  I just decided how much to donate every year and divided by 52 weeks.  It’s also very easy to change the amount with a simple phone call.”  Bob Ostrowski

“I served three years on our Parish Finance Council.  During that time it became very clear to me just how important it is for Saint Bede to have a steady and reliable stream of donations throughout the calendar year to meet its financial obligations.  Now please don’t misunderstand me, Christmas and Easter donations are very important and much appreciated by Saint Bede, but it’s a long time between April and December, and our Parish has bills coming due almost every day of the year.  That’s why Linda and I make our contributions via a safe and secure automatic Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) from our bank account.  It doesn’t matter if there is a hurricane or a snow storm, or if we are away on a trip; Saint Bede can count on our donation.  When our donation arrives, the Parish splits it up between its operating account and its social ministry account to match our wishes.  There is another nice benefit to making our donation by EFT, we are no longer scrambling to find the donation envelope and our checkbook when it’s time to leave the house for Mass.  So, if you can do it, please consider donating automatically by EFT from your bank account.  It is the most reliable way to financially support our Parish.” Bill Burke

"What a relief not to hassle with the Offertory each week and I stay in complete control."
