Contribution Option (ECO)
Please take a moment to reflect on this opportunity to support the ongoing
stewardship renewal at our parish. In doing so, consider the following
passage from the Old Testament: “The choicest of the first fruits
of your ground you shall bring into the house of the LORD your God” (Ex
Instead of using a weekly envelope, parishioners are invited to use our
parish Electronic Contribution Option program. This is a direct transfer
of funds from savings or checking accounts to the parish account.
The ECO program provides our parish with reliable income each month. The
more income we receive through this program, the more accurately we can
project and control our cash flow.
By making contributions more convenient, the ECO program also provides
the contributor with some advantages. They merely identify the amount that
they would like to contribute, the account from which they would like the
money transferred, and the frequency.
Transfers can be made once per month for the whole sum, or twice per month
for half the sum. It is important to note that the traditional envelope
system for weekly contributions will remain as an option for those who
wish to use it.
Another valuable, though less obvious, advantage of the Electronic Contribution
Option is that it helps the individual to sustain their financial commitment
to the church. The average, well-intentioned church contributor would like
to give a certain amount to the parish. However, church contribution is
not typically the first expense allocated once they set about the business
of paying the bills. The end result is that the church is one of the last "bills” to
Often it is not what one hoped to give but what is left over that goes
to the parish. The ECO program helps the contributor to offer the first
fruits, not the leftovers, to God.
