​​Weekly Parish Collection – There are several ways a parishioner/guest may contribute to the parish.

Online Contribution:  Saint Stephen's is now using an online payment system called WeShare.   

Envelopes: provided on a monthly basis to active registered parishioners.

What is WeShare?

WeShare, Liturgical Publications Online Giving Management System, allows you to donate to our church efficiently, effectively, and securely. It is an automated means for you to support your church financially through one-time or recurring contributions.

Can our members still donate using weekly envelopes?

Absolutely. Although donating online replaces the need for weekly envelopes, it is not mandatory.

What if our members feel uncomfortable not having something to physically drop into the collection basket?

Don’t worry! You can print out forms from your WeShare account that can be put into the collection basket that say, “We lovingly made our donation through WeShare.”

How do our members change their personal information such as their bank account number, mailing address, or donation amount?

Members can make these changes themselves by visiting their organization’s WeShare website, or by calling their organization’s office. Donors can plan their contributions for the entire year— or they can change their donation amount online whenever they like.

Which payment methods are accepted?

A church or organization can choose to allow contributions from checking accounts, savings accounts, debit cards, or major credit cards such as Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express.

Do members receive receipts for their donations?

Yes, all contributors enrolled with WeShare can elect to receive receipts via e-mail.

Is WeShare safe?

Yes. We take security and privacy of both the church and its donors extremely seriously. We annually undergo an external audit to certify we are Level 1 for PCI (Payment Card Industry) Compliance. Our data center uses the latest state-of-the-art security measures resulting in an SSAE-16 Certification. You will never be responsible for collecting and storing credit card or bank account information associated with WeShare.

WARNING want to warn you about a fake email account that has been going around.

Many were contacted by a person with an email That is frtimothydyer@gmail.com 
The sender name is Rev Msgr. Timothy Dyer

This person asks for you to help his sick friend by sending gift cards in large dollar amounts to go to CVS and purchase them,  scratch the back PIN numbers and send pictures of the front and back of the card. He only wanted to communicate through email. Father Time was made aware of this fake. 

This person was relentless and became angry when his request is not obeyed. The fake requestor said he was in a program meeting and that he would talk to soon and would pay back the money!

Please please please WATCH OUT. After talking to the real Father Tim he wants you to know that he would never ask you for money through an email! The real father Tim’s email account is a yahoo.com account.
