Parish offeratory request

Masses may be canceled because of the COVID-19 pandemic, but the work of the church goes on. The 77 parishes across the Diocese of Davenport are still performing vital ministry work — though a bit differently with public health restrictions in place.

Baptisms and funerals, Masses online, prayer support and community outreach — these efforts and more help to meet people’s spiritual needs during this uncertain time when people can’t attend Mass in person because of the coronavirus pandemic. Cancellation of Masses affects the offertory collections, which represent the largest source of income for parishes to fund their ministry efforts.

Parishioners are encouraged to consider mailing in their Sunday offertory gifts to their parishes or giving online, if possible. “Our parishes depend on your weekly financial gifts to continue their ministries in this critical time of crisis when we are not able to go to Mass,” said Michael Hoffman, diocesan director of development and stewardship. “We are still called to give our time and our financial resources. We have a spiritual need to give in gratitude for all the blessings we receive.”

Now may be a good time to transition from the traditional envelopes to online giving, he suggested. “A number of people have told me that they are giving online for the first time.” Others are making an extra effort to mail in their offertory gifts every week.

Religious Supply

Many of the diocese’s 77 parishes offer online giving. This option creates a regular system of giving that can provide income to the parish and for second collections even when a parishioner isn’t at church on a given Sunday.

Online giving also eases the workload of parish staff and volunteer counters after the weekend Masses. “Our top priority is to help meet the needs of people in this crisis,” Hoffman said. “The generosity and support of people across our diocese will also help the church weather the challenges posed by this unprecedented public health threat.”

For your convenience, the list that accompanies this article provides the mailing address of each parish and the parish’s website.

“We are thankful for your generosity,” Hoffman said.
