Ways to Give

And the children of Israel and Judah, that dwelt in the cities of Judah, they also brought in the tithe of oxen and sheep, and the tithe of dedicated things which were consecrated unto Jehovah their God, and laid them by heaps. 2 Chronicles 31:6

On Stewardship – Your contributions to St. Mary Parish help to support the many ministries that serve the people of God right here in Leelanau County.  The business office works closely with the Parish Council & Finance Council to ensure that our budgeting process fulfills the needs of the overall mission of the parish.  St. Mary Parish maintains a balanced budget and is debt free.

Help our Parish Ministries Grow – Send your donation to St Mary Church. Note which ministry which you would like your contribution to go. The parish office will allocate your contribution to that ministry’s account. Please see our list of parish ministries and their activities on the following pages.

Direct gifts to our school – Use the Development Office envelopes located in each pew. They can be dropped into the collection basket or mailed directly to the office. These gifts can be directed to certain projects in the school, endowments or Guardian Angel Scholarships which help parents afford to send their children to our school.

Mass Intention Stipends – Masses are offered for special intentions during all daily Masses. Call the parish office to book your Mass intention at least 4 months in advance for Saturday or Sunday Mass requests and 3 months ahead for weekday Masses. Mail your $10.00 stipend to the parish office or place it in a separate envelope in the collection basket with the mass intention on the outside of the envelope.

Honorariums – Gifts can be sent in honor of a beloved family member or friend. Resources will be directed to the parish needs.
