Queen of Peace has an Online Giving program available to our parishioners. We have arranged with Vanco Services to provide our members an opportunity to use Electronic Funds Transfer as an alternative method for giving. The Program is free of charge for parishioners. By making your offering through our Online Giving program it allows you to donate once or make a recurring contribution that is automatically transferred from your checking or savings account on a monthly basis, and you select your own billing date. This is an easy way to make your Sunday contributions without worrying about your collection envelope. The use of EFT is not only time saving and convenient for you, but also allows our Parish to realize a more consistent level of support. By signing up for the Online Giving program, you will know that you are doing your part to support the Parish even at times you are not able to physically present to celebrate with the Parish Community. To sign-up simply CLICK HERE.

Of course, if you prefer, your collection envelope is still a great way to support Queen of Peace Parish. Simply drop it in the collection basket on Sunday or you may mail it to the Rectory: 820 North Hills Avenue, Ardsley, PA 19038.

Thank you for your generous support
