2023 Every Member Canvass
The theme for our 2023 Every Member Canvass is “Thanks be to God!” Your pledge is a thank-offering to God for the blessings of this life, and of this parish. When you pledge to support the ongoing work of St. Francis, you are participating in our vision to make and grow disciples of Jesus Christ by drawing all generations into worship, formation, and mission. We can’t wait to see where the Holy Spirit calls us with your help!
How to Pledge
- Fill out a paper pledge card (available at the parish office) and bring it to church or mail it in.
- Pledge online by clicking the “Pledge Now” button below and logging into Realm. (If you do not have a login, please contact the parish office at (502) 528-1166 or email@example.com.)
- Enter the amount you would like to pledge and select “Every Member Canvass” from the dropdown menu. Below this, make sure “Give Multiple Items” is highlighted. You can select the frequency of your donation using the provided options (weekly, every two weeks, every month, twice a month, or once every three months).
- Your donation will recur indefinitely unless you select the “+END” button next to the line labeled “Start date.” If you would like your pledge to end on a specific date, select “Date” under the “Stop giving after” option and type in your preferred end date. If you would like your pledge to end after a certain number of donations, select “# of times” and provide the number of donations at which you would like to end your pledge.
Everyone who pledges will receive a limited edition St. Francis in the Fields magnetic bumper sticker as a thank you for your support!
There is no more profound way to honor the memory of a loved one than to contribute to Gospel ministry in their name. To further the work of announcing Christ’s Good News at St. Francis in memoriam of a friend or family member, select Memorial Fund from the menu.
