The Parish Offertory Program invites parishioners to reflect upon the blessings in their lives and their current level of offertory giving.
The diocese currently offers support to parishes through training in the Bannon Offertory Program and Faith Direct.
The Arlington Diocese launched the Bannon Offertory program in the fall of 2005. The reporting parishes that implemented the program experienced an average increase of 20% the first year of the program. In the second year of the program, the parishes that conducted a renewal phase experienced a 5-10% increase over their first year’s increase.
Considered the leading full service electronic giving program for churches nationwide, Faith Direct has inspired the conversion of thousands of envelope users to recurring automatic supporters. Their program for participating churches provides the security, marketing, infrastructure and administrative capacity that consistently leads to superior results and participation.
