Options for OLGC Parishioners
Three ways to support your parish

eGiving with Faith Direct

In May of 2020, OLGC Parish introduced Faith Direct eGiving.  Faith direct, by debiting your checking/savings account or credit/debit cards will make your offering to Our Lady of Good Counsel.  The program has been a success, especially during the COVID Pandemic.  In addition, it is a very convenient method for making your offering.  For example, there are no checks to write; envelopes to use; it can be programed to be automatic for a quarterly, monthly or weekly gift; make your offering even when on vacation.

It is easy to enroll.
Just go online to https://membership.faithdirect.net/enroll/FL1062 

This site is the enrollment page, and it is here that you can enroll to setup your offering for: regular collection, Holy Days, one time gifts and non-parochial collections.  If you do have questions, feel free to contact the Parish Office at 904-824-8688.

Online Banking

An alternative option for OLGC parishioners is to go online to your bank for an electronic bank check to be mailed (the bank actually sends a check drawn on your account to OLGC).

This method is currently being used by many parishioners.  You can make it an automatic transaction with your bank to send your offering via a bank check either weekly or monthly.  By using this method of payment, your offering will be received automatically, even if you are on vacation or unable to attend Mass.

Please provide your OLGC Parish envelope number to the bank when setting up your transaction.

Make a Gift Though and IRA Charitable Rollover

A distribution from your IRA is a great way to support the Church! If you reached the age of 70½, you may make a direct distribution (up to $100,000) from your IRA to a qualified charity, such as Our Lady of Good Counsel Parish. A qualified direct distribution to our parish from your IRA is not subject to income tax. (For more information about how you and our church can benefit from an IRA charitable rollover, contact your IRA administrator, tax preparer, or the parish office for more information.)
