Annual Tithing

Please Give Generously
St. Peter’s relies on parishioners’ generosity with the Annual Stewardship Renewal, which includes our campaign for annual tithing. We are asking for you to give 5% of your after-tax  income to St. Peter’s Parish, 1% to the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph, and the remaining 4% to a charity of your choice. Our fiscal year is July 1st – June 30th. We typically have our annual campaign in February, allowing parishioners time to prayerfully consider their next year’s annual giving, and also to allot time for our parish leadership to determine the budget.

If you are a current parishioner who would like to set up your pledge online, click on This Link and you may sign up without needing to fill out paperwork.

If you prefer to fill out a paper form, you may download this year’s form Here. Just return to the parish office at your earliest convenience.

Automated Tithing
Tithing parishioners may fill out forms to automate the payment of your tithe through an automatic withdrawal from your checking account. This helps our business manager save our parish time and money.  It cuts down on mailings, ensures optimum cash flow, and is all around a best practice to streamline managing the parish budget. If you are a tithing parishioner and haven’t considered automatic pay, please give it a try.  It’s as easy as this:
1) Click here to download the Vanco auto-withdrawal Authorization Form.
2) Fill out the form and sign it.
3) If auto-withdrawing from a checking account, attach a voided check.
If auto-withdrawing from a savings account, contact your financial institution for the Routing # and include it on the form.
4) Return to Warren Blevins in the parish business office.

On-Demand Online Payment Option
St. Peter’s offers an online payment portal, which allows you to give additional gifts, catch up on your tithe, buy tickets to parish and school events, pay school fees, and much more. You can also set up your tithe to be paid through your credit card, on a schedule of your choosing. Click here go to the payment portal.

Special Gifts
You may choose to honor your annual tithe with special gifts, including the transfer of appreciated stock or mutual fund shares, or an IRA Charitable rollover. See links below for more information.
