Introducing a New Giving Platform and Parish App!
We are excited to announce that we have a new giving platform and a new Saint Miriam Parish App! The new giving platform is called Tithe.ly and it will be replacing all of our current online eGiving and one-time donation methods (SafeSave, Square, etc.).
Signing Up for the First Time?
If you have never downloaded the Saint Miriam app before and/or this is your first time signing up for electronic giving, click on the button below!
This new platform will reduce our fees incurred in processing the transactions (bank fees). This will lead to more of your donation going to support actual ministry and not the financial institutions.
More Control for You
The new platform will allow you to create an account whereby you will have full control of your giving. You can increase as you can, decrease or pause when needed, and receive immediate, real-time updates on your giving!
Better Fee Structure
This new platform will allow you to voluntarily generously cover the fees associated with processing your personal transactions. It will add a modest sum (just a dollar or two) and that willingness and generosity, combined with others who give, will help us to save thousands of dollars each year!
