St. Cecilia Roman Catholic Church

A Parish and School of National Distinction


With this year’s DPAA, credit card and electronic funds transfer (EFT) gifts are being handled differently at the recommendation of our Diocesan auditors. The Diocesan Stewardship Office is no longer able to accept credit card numbers or voided checks for EFTs. To make a donation in this manner, parishioners need to go to and click on the Diocesan Parish Annual Appeal ‘DONATE’ button. The first screen will ask for your monthly contribution and the second screen will ask for the total contribution. Unfortunately, for those who have given, many are indicating their total as their monthly contribution. For example, many wishing to pledge $100/month for 10 months for a $1,000 pledge are actually stating they wish to pledge $1,000/month. When filling out the data, please ensure that you state that you wish your monies to be credited towards St Cecilia’s Parish goal. If you do not, the monies go to a general fund. Thank you in advance for your patience and generosity.
