Giving to St. Patrick Parish
In response to many parishioners who have requested the convenience of online giving, St. Patrick Parish is partnering with Faith Direct.
Through Faith Direct you can make all of your contributions to St. Patrick via automatic payment from your checking account or credit card—just as you may do now with your mortgage, household bills, and other monthly payments. This is a great way to simplify your giving—and it’s the most cost-effective, environmentally-friendly way for us to receive your gifts.
When you sign up with Faith Direct, you can either make a one-time gift or you can set up recurring gifts, with options to donate weekly or monthly.
You may also call 1-866-507-8757 and a Faith Direct customer service representative will help you sign up.
Traditional weekly offertory envelopes are still available as well. To request them, call the rectory at 216-631-6872 or submit this contact form.
Other One-time Donations
One-time financial donations can be mailed to St. Patrick Parish, 3602 Bridge Ave., Cleveland OH 44113, or dropped off at the rectory.
The Cleveland Catholic Community Foundation provides the following information about other ways to give to the Church. Please contact the Parish if you would like to know more.
Many Catholics decide to plan for a gift to the Church when they are creating or updating their will and estate plan. Perhaps you, too, are looking for a way to express your gratitude to God for the blessings you have received. Or, you have a desire to pass on to the next generation the Catholic values that have shaped your life. Maybe you haven’t been able to make sizeable gifts from your income during your lifetime, but you want to plan a larger gift from your assets at your death.
No matter your circumstance or stage of life, there is a way to make a meaningful gift that reflects the Catholic faith you hold dear. Whether you are thinking about a gift to help your parish, Catholic Charities, Catholic Education, Priestly Formation or another ministry of the Diocese of Cleveland, consider these popular options:
Bequest– a gift that can be made simply in your will. You specify a set dollar amount or a percentage of your estate to be donated to charity.
Retirement Plans – you can name a charity, such as your parish, Catholic Charities or another diocesan ministry as a beneficiary of a retirement plan.
Life Insurance – you can designate the Church as beneficiary of a life insurance policy that is no longer needed.
