Contributing by Credit Card Authority

When arranging Credit Card based payments you authorise scheduled charges to your credit card on a regular basis. Features of using this approach are:

  • You request the Parish to raise charges as you authorise. To change that authority you need to contact the Parish House.
  • There's no bank fee paid charged to you, but there's a fee born by the parish (lower than that associated with Direct Debit arrangements where the amount is less than $30)
  • You can set this up yourself online.

We ask that you set up two pledges as follows:

  1. Stewardship - supports the mission of our Parish and the work of the church across Melbourne. We need this to pay for things like pastoral programs such as Winter Shelter and sacramental programs, insurance, utilities, loans and other Church and Parish operating expenses, as well as the salaries of our staff.
  2. Presbytery - for the stipend and food expenses of our parish priest.

Charges made to your card account will show on your statement as something like "HOLYSPIRIT NORTH RINGWOOD" (depending on your credit provider).

Payments will be acknowledge by an emailed receipt. You can elect to opt-out of receiving receipt emails.

Note: Card details are securely stored directly with Fat Zebra, the payment gateway provider for Catholic Development Fund. They are not seen or stored by the Parish or any other party.

To change an authorisation such as pause or cancel it, and perhaps make a new one, please contact the Parish House. This is particularly important for the parish's budget.

Thank you for making a commitment to the work of your parish.
