GiveCentral offers an easy, convenient way to support St. Luke Parish

Online giving is a safe, convenient, and easy way to make gifts whether it's for your weekly Sunday offering or a one-time gift, such as for special national collections. Once you sign up, you will be able to manage your giving preferences at any time, and you won't have to worry about writing a check or carrying cash to church each week. You can manage it anywhere you have an internet connection 24/7.

 
Online giving helps St. Luke, too, by giving us a predictable cash flow that we can plan on and by ensuring that a gift is received even when bad weather, illness or travel prevent Mass attendance. Please, if you haven't already, sign up today by visiting our secure GiveCentral page here.
 
On behalf of the entire staff, we thank you for all the prayers and financial contributions you provide so that our parish can be present and serving you.
