YEAR END CHURCH CONTRIBUTIONS AND YOUR TAXES

Church donations received on Monday, December 31 are deductible for 2018. Donations received on Tuesday, January 1, 2019 will not qualify as charitable deductions for 2018 even if the check was written in 2018 or backdated to 2018, per IRS rulings. Donations post-marked in 2018 are deductible in 2018 even if they are received in 2019. Keep in mind that your parish office may be closed on December 31, and if needed, call ahead about staff hours, or if you have questions about this ruling. As always, your parish support is very much appreciated!


SAVE TIME AND NEVER BE LATE!

Now might be the right time for you to consider changing your way of making church contributions. You could save time and always be assured that your contributions are timely. If you use an auto-pay method for other recurring payments (mortgage, car loan, insurance, utilities, etc.) then why not take advantage of the automated bank transfer system for Sacrificial Giving to your church. It is an easy and safe way to contribute. Choose the day of transfer, and adjust the amount whenever you desire. All Saints, St. James and St. Mary Parishes offer this service. For more information, please call your church office.

The Our Father

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us, and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen

Hail Mary

Hail, Mary! Full of grace, The Lord is with thee, Blessed are thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now, and at the hour of our death. Amen

Glory Be

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen
