online giving

At Our Lady of Grace Church we offer a web based offertory solution. We provide this service, so that you have the option to manage your contributions online. This service is safe and secure, requires no special software, and is convenient for you and our parish staff. The parish will provide data for your records and for tax purposes but will not have use of the information for any other purpose.


If you would like to make a one-time gift, set up a weekly, monthly, or even annual donation please click the ONLINE GIVING button below.


When we give, it acknowledges God as the giver of everything we have, reflects our trust that He will continue to provide for us, and allows us to be a part of His work here on earth. It’s something we do with joy. With God’s favor and your faithful support, Our Lady of Grace Church will continue to have an incredible impact in our community, our parish, and for our children.

CATHOLIC FAITH APPEAL

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

“…It is more blessed to give than to receive.” (Acts 20:35). These

words from Jesus, recounted by the Apostle Paul, are central to the

life we are called to live. St. John Paul II wrote about this very passage

from scripture, noting that the desire to give “…is rooted in the

depths of the human heart.” Every person desires to find fulfillment

in the gifting of self to others.

The Catholic Faith Appeal (CFA) of the Diocese of Venice

provides an opportunity to respond to this inner call to give of one’s

self. The CFA allows the chance to assist in the good works of the

Diocese throughout Southwest Florida. Your kindness and generosity

help those in need.

Many of the Diocesan programs and ministries supported by

the Catholic Faith Appeal are highlighted herein. As can be seen,

the CFA furthers the mission given by Christ and impacts so many

lives: children being educated in Catholic schools, seminarians being

prepared for priesthood, elderly and vulnerable being cared for,

homeless parents being assisted in basic essentials for their children,

people of all ages being drawn closer to Christ, etc.

It is the combined efforts of faithful and generous donors,

through the Catholic Faith Appeal, that allow the Church in the

Diocese of Venice to touch the lives of the poor and the needy. I invite

you to join in following St. Paul’s words and be “blessed” through

giving to others.

Thank you for your support of the Catholic Faith Appeal. Please

know that your generosity is greatly appreciated and you and your

family are in my prayers.



Sincerely yours in Christ,

+ Frank J. Dewane

Bishop of the Diocese of

Venice in Florida
