St. Raphael’s operating budget is funded entirely by the generous contributions of our members, friends, and visitors. Contributions in any amount are appreciated, and may be given at the Offertory at any service, or sent to the church office. You can also pay online through Square, a secure online donation and payment processing service.
If you are able to provide one, an Estimate of Giving helps our Vestry know which bills can be paid and which projects must be put off. The annual stewardship campaign, during which estimates for the following year are requested, takes place in the fall, but pledges are welcome at any time of the year.
St. Raphael’s participates in several reward and give-back programs. In general the way these programs work is you click on a link, use a card, or enter a special code, and the retailer will give St. Raphael’s a percentage of your expenditures at no cost to you. Though small, these amounts add up over time and over the members in church body to make a difference. Please participate!
