Part of becoming a joyful, missionary disciple is being a good steward in one’s parish community. Thanks to reduced spending and increased giving we were able to recover from a deficit year in 2015 to a profitable year in 2016. That trend of increased giving continued when we reduced our weekend masses from five to four. This allowed us to take care of all the maintenance and repair issues that came up throughout the year, keep the campus beautiful, and even make some cost-saving enhancements throughout the facilities. All of this could not have been made possible if not for the favorable response to our offertory increase campaign.
This kind of momentum has additional impacts that the numbers alone do not do a good job of presenting. We were able to grow the various ministries and commissions that keep St. Fabian focused on its mission. We reestablished our Senior group (SAGE), continued to enhance our Christian Service outreach and Ladies in Faith Together, (L.I.F.T. Ministry,) plus we launched a bold new approach to evangelization in our hospitality ministries at all the weekend masses. We are experiencing twice the number of new family registrations this year as compared to last year. It does not end there. Talk to anyone, a first time visitor or a long time parishioner, and something Amazing is happening at St. Fabian.
Respectfully and with Gratitude,

Parishioners have the option of having parish donations automatically withdrawn. There are a number of reasons we make the electronic payment (e-giving) program available to parishioners:
- E-Giving takes money processing out of our hands and leaves it in the banks where it is most secure.
- E-Giving saves the parish money because we won’t have to pay to print and mail envelopes to parishioners once they are enrolled
- E-Giving saves the parishioner time by automatically making the payment and saves in fees for checks and processing.
- E-Giving allows the parishioner to donate monthly to the Sunday Offertory on the first Monday of each month.
- E-Giving allows parishioners to choose to participate in Special Offerings such as Holy Days and Bi-Annually to St. Vincent de Paul. (Dates are on the form.)
E-Giving enrollment begins about two to after the form is turned in or emailed to the parish office. If you fill out the PDF form electronically, please email the completed form to Mary Doot (email@example.com) AND Paul Pyrkosz (firstname.lastname@example.org).
E-Giving can be altered or terminated by using the same form, just mark the appropriate box at top of form.
If you ever need to make changes to an existing donation or to cancel your electronic giving, there are boxes on top of the enrollment form to Change Donation Amount, Change Account, or Cancel. In these cases, simply fill in the relevant information.
Thanks for considering this cost-saving and time-saving choice for giving. Please use the form below to enroll.
