2020 Contribution Statements ... The parish office is required by federal law to generate and mail receipts to donors who have made any single contribution, payment, or gift of $250 or more. We will mail these receipts directly to donors.
For all other donors: In an effort to be good stewards of the environment and our physical resources, we will only send paper copies to donors that request them. Use the link below or call the office at 740-363-4641 ext. 102. Statements will be sent out in January 2021.
The annual collection begins in February for The Catholic Times newspaper, the official news source for the Diocese of Columbus. The Catholic Times features insightful commentary from a Catholic perspective and focuses on news around the diocese from parishes, schools, events and Bishop Robert Brennan. Subscribe to the print edition and the paper will be delivered to your home through the mail. This year, you are strongly encouraged to go online to sign up as a new subscriber or to renew your subscription to The Catholic Times.
Access the subscription payments tab in the left-hand menu and then enter your address and payment details. You may also use the purple envelope from St Mary marked Catholic Times (or your own envelope with The Catholic Times written on the outside) and drop it into the regular collection at Sunday Mass. Please note there will be no payment option through the St Mary Online Giving site. If you would like to donate to The Catholic Times to help others who might like to receive the newspaper but may not be able to afford a subscription, include the name and address of the individual or family. Sign up or renew right away to avoid missing an issue!
Payments by check should be made out to:

These financial gifts support the many ministries and Parish Life that makes St. Mary so special. We accept pledges for our Offertory program throughout the year. The parish needs faithful givers to support our daily operations. Your regular giving through the offertory will fund all our ministries and outreaches, religious education and spiritual programs, music at the Masses, monthly utilities, normal building & grounds maintenance, and administrative costs.
It is your financial commitment that ensures St. Mary is able to keep our doors open and our parish operating.
Consider the way you financially support our parish. Online Giving is offered as a secure and convenient alternative to giving through envelopes or cash in the offertory basket. Online Giving benefits the parish by way of a more consistent offertory income and allows us to better forecast, implement, track and adhere to our budget.
