For where your treasure is, there your heart will be.
As Christian stewards, we are called to prayerfully consider the gifts we have received from God, deciding on what to give, in advance from the “first fruits” instead of what is left over after obligations have been met. To the One who has given us everything, let us return to Him the first 10% of our income as a form of worship.
There are a variety of ways to give to Our Lady of Mercy parish. We try to provide as many options as possible so we can help you give in the way that works best for you. If you have any questions about the ways to give, please email our Business Manager Robert Gancartz at firstname.lastname@example.org.
During this time of the pandemic, we encourage you to participate in online giving instead. However, you can mail your weekly offering to our Parish Office at 701 South Eola Road, Aurora, IL 60504. We also now have text-to-give; enter desired contribution amount and text to (630)647-8105, follow the rest of the instructions.
Thank you for your generosity.
The site is secure and allows you to support God’s work from anywhere you have an internet connection.
When you sign up for envelopes, you’ll be sent a package with envelopes for each week of the year, as well as special envelopes with additional collections during the year. The money you give can be tracked during the year for a tax receipt as well, which is a nice bonus for supporting the mission.
You can always give with cash in person on the weekend.
Matching gifts are when companies match donations that their employees make to charities. When an employee makes a charitable donation, they’ll request a matching gift from their employer, who then makes their own donation. Companies usually make a donation on a 1:1 ratio, but some will double, triple, or even quadruple your donation. Please email our Business Manager Robert Gancartz at email@example.com.
If you want to include the parish in your will, or if you want to give stock as a gift to the parish, please email our Business Manager Robert Gancartz at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The walkway to the main door at Our Lady of Mercy contains many memorial paving stones, but there is room for many more.
Engraved pavers are available for $200 by contacting the Parish Office or by filling out the form below.
