GIVING OUR TREASURE
* * * * *
St. Michael Parish offers an online giving service that provides many benefits for our parishioners. There's no need to write checks, you can give even when you are away from home, and you can easily specify the amount from wherever you are. You can access St. Michael's online giving service through this link.
Many people enjoy the modern convenience, safety and reliability of making automatic deposits or transactions through the automated banking system. Now you can make weekly or monthly stewardship contributions through the St. Michael Automated Offering Plan. Simply complete this form and we will do the rest. It's safe, easy and absolutely free.
At St. Michael Catholic Church, many of our members choose to donate regularly using their offertory envelopes. We send those members envelopes for use every month and include envelopes for Holy days and special collections. Call us at (919) 468-6100 or drop by the parish office to register in the parish and request envelopes.
St. Michael Catholic Church has many second collection opportunities throughout the year. If you are interested in taking advantage of supporting any of these worthy causes, please click HERE for the 2020 schedule. To donate, you can give via envelope, basket (in church), or online HERE.
Online Giving - Switching from WeShare to Realm
We're changing the way we accept online giving contributions to make it easier for existing recurring online donors, and we need your help.
We are making exciting changes to our Church online giving! Our new site, Realm, will make it easier for you to give and will provide you with more benefits:
- Communicate with Parish ministries and more
- Read Parish news and announcements
- Register Adults and children for events, study groups and classes
- Update your personal information and access giving information
The new online giving will require that your current recurring contributions be re-scheduled. You will receive an invite to create an account in Realm. Please use the link in that email and follow the steps to create a password. Once you are in, it will ask you for Name, Address, Birth date, Phone and Gender. Then you go to the Giving tab and you will be able to start your new recurring contribution. To ensure that your contributions continue as you intend and you aren’t doubling your donation, you’ll need to delete your recurring with our old site https://stmichaelcary.weshareonline.org. Please complete these steps by January 31, 2020 as we hope to transfer completely off our old system soon. We appreciate your generous support to our Parish. Thank you for taking a few moments to update your giving information.
If you have any questions, please contact Alma Logue at the Church office at 919-468-6176 or [email protected]

Special Collection - Honduras Student Sponsorship Program
(July 30, 2019 - January 31, 2020)
It is time to renew your current Honduras Sister Parish Student sponsorship. Please consider sponsoring additional students. There is also an opportunity to assist the sister parish agricultural projects and other school projects. You register for "free" and after you click next you will be taken to a screen where you can make your donation. Student sponsorship is for the 2020 academic year and is a $75.00 donation. If you wish to make a donation to the agricultural program and for other educational needs, you may do so. Please enter an even dollar amount. You will be asked for your sponsor number, so please have it handy. We can find your student number(s) using your sponsor number, so you don’t need to provide them. Thank you very much for your generosity!
