We are humbled by any gift we receive, and we appreciate your donation to help St. Joan of Arc share Christ's message, serve the needs of our community and meet our financial responsibilities. Your online giving can be made at the link below, with options for both one-time and recurring gifts and both Debit/Credit Card transactions or ACH Bank Drafts.
On the screen for the giving form, you will have the option to give a one-time gift, or you can check the box below the dollar amount to make it a Recurring Gift and choose the increment of time you would like the donation to repeat: weekly, monthly, or annually. Before each donation goes through, you will receive a reminder email which will give you the option to make any changes to the amount or frequency of your recurring gift, so that you can always choose what the right amount is for your family or situation at any given time. There is also an option to cover the processing fees for the transaction on behalf of the church, so that the full amount of your donation can go straight to St. Joan, but if you choose not to, you can uncheck that box at the bottom of the form.
