Comments received:
* I love this idea! I have been thinking about suggesting something like this since I started to give online a few months ago. After years of putting an envelope in the collection basket, it just feels strange to have the ushers pass by. Besides… It reminds my daughters and granddaughters who often attend with me about my commitment to OMC. And maybe others seeing some of us participate in this way, might consider online giving too.

* I really appreciate this. I felt awful when they passed around the basket after the homily on Sunday and I still put nothing in the basket. I feel like a bad example, even as I contribute to OMC.

* I think it is a waste of time and paper.

What are the fees paid to OSV for contributions made online
• We pay a transaction fee of .33 for each donation made via cash, check or ACH to OSV.
• For credit cards there is a transaction fee ranging from 2.82% to 3.39% depending on the credit card company.
• As a parish we pay OSV a onetime setup fee of $200 and a monthly fee of $20.
There is also a fee of $49 per year to Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards for an annual review of security practices

I did not receive the increased offertory program mailing that had the brochure and commitment card. How can I get them?
Please pick these items up from the gathering place or send an email to johle@OMCsandiego.org and we will mail them to you.
