2019 BISHOP’S APPEAL:
The 2019 Bishop’s Appeal will be conducted in all of the parishes throughout the Albany Diocese the next few weekends. Your participation is essential to the success of the Bishop’s Appeal. If you would like to donate to the Bishop’s Appeal online, please go to thebishopsappeal.org and choose “St. Edward the Confessor (Clifton Park)”. Fun fact: over 20% of St. Edward’s 2018 donations were contributed online!
In response to requests from parishioners, we have introduced a new and exciting way for you to support our parish offertory and second collections: With Faith Direct, you can make regular automatic contributions to St. Edward’s using your credit/debit card or bank account, the same process that you may use to pay utility bills or make car payments. Making your donations automatically means relief from the hassle of locating your offertory envelopes as you run out the door on Sunday morning and guarantees that the church will receive your gifts even if you are unable to attend Mass. There is no fee to you, the parishioner, associated with use of the Faith Direct program. Automatic contributions greatly benefit St. Edward’s by providing a predictable cash flow as well as decreasing the time and money the church expends dealing with the envelope system. Faith Direct will provide you with personalized offertory cards that you may place in the basket, and a year-end tax statement. We find Faith Direct a “win-win” for both parishioners and our parish. Please enroll in this program by picking up an enrollment form from the church office, or by visiting www.faithdirect.net to enroll securely on line. Our parish code is NY113.
Please email the Parish Office at firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to discontinue envelopes.
