Automatic Stewardship Form

 

AUTOMATIC STEWARDSHIP PLAN 

▪ With the Automatic Stewardship Plan, your contributions can be made without writing a check. No need to change your present banking relationship. You authorize monthly payments from your account… and we’ll make the payment for you. 

▪ We will withdraw your contribution from your bank account on the 5th of each month. If the 5th of the month falls on a weekend or a bank holiday, your contribution will be processed on the next business day. 

▪ The Automatic Payment plan saves both you and the parish time and money because you write fewer checks, and you have the peace of mind knowing your payment was made on time. Your monthly bank statement (or your online balance) will show proof of your payment. In the turn, the parish benefits by reducing processing time and reducing printing costs for stewardship envelopes. 

▪ You can authorize the Automatic Payment quickly and easily. Simply fill out this form and drop it off or mail it to the parish office, or drop in the collection basket. 

 

Good Samaritan

Good Samaritan Fund & Ministry

The Good Samaritan fund and ministry at St. Augustine/St. Edward allows us as parishioners to “go and do likewise.”  There are many people within our community that are in great need.  We as people of God and disciples of Jesus Christ want to reach out to our brothers and sisters in need with our assistance.

“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind.”and, “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

 “You have answered correctly,” Jesus replied. “Do this and you will live.”

 But he wanted to justify himself, so he asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?”

In reply, Jesus said: “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho when he was attacked by robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead.  A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side.   So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him.   He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to an inn and took care of him.  The next day he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper. ‘Look after him,’ he said, ‘and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.’

“Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?”

 The expert in the law replied, “The one who had mercy on him.”

Jesus told him, “Go and do likewise.”
