Important Notice - “Net Charge” Program Cancellation
First, may I say ‘”Thank You” for your participation in the NetCharge program. This pilot program was initiated last year to provide a new means to satisfy individual family needs for on-line offerings. Unfortunately, we have found that outsourcing our collection process has not been enthusiastically received and has fallen short of targeted expectations.
As a result, we have decided not to renew our contract with Net Charge which expires this month. Therefore, it will be necessary for all participants to withdraw from the program by May 31, 2014. Instructions for stopping your payments are attached. If you have any difficulty in effecting this change, our contact person at NetCharge is Karen Hoch, who can be reached at 973-914-3942.
Although this contribution method has not been as successful as we would have liked, the same financial goals (both for you and our church) may be met by your accessing the “On-Line Banking” feature of your individual bank. Recurring withdrawals payable to St. Mary Church can be set up on a schedule that meets your preferences.
If you are not currently receiving contribution envelopes but would like to reinstate the mailings, please phone the office at 908-454-0444.
I thank you again for your participation and apologize for any inconvenience that the discontinuation of NetCharge may cause you.
I will continue to keep you and your family in my prayers!
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Reverend Monsignor Terrance M. Lawler, KCHS
