Financial Gifts

The Pastor, the finance committe and the pastoral council strive to be good stewards of the gifts we are given, and work to stretch our budget to accomplish much.   We also strive for transparency and invite you to review our monthly Financial Update and the Stewardship in Action report.  


Weekly Envelopes
Weekly envelopes are sent to parishioner homes on a monthly basis.  Your contributions are used to establish the yearly operating budget of the parish.  


Automatic Debits or Charges
Did you know you can make your weekly contribution via an automatic electronic fund transfer from your bank account?  You may also have an automatic charge to your credit card.

Directed Gifts
If you would like to support a certain project or program, you may donate a Directed Gift, also called a restricted gift, at any time.  This donation will be held in a special fund and only used for the purpose you intended.  If you would like to make a Directed Gift Donation, please contact our Business Manager, Marian Johnston 630-615-7605.


Memorial Gifts
A Memorial Gift is a thoughtful way to mark a special occasion or to honor the memory of a relative or friend.  To make a memorial gift, contact  our Business Manager, Marian Johnston 630-615-7605.


Tuition Angels
St. Raphael often receives requests from our parish families for assistance with school tuition or religious education/ youth ministries fees.  Assistance is given based on financial need.  If you believe in Catholic Education and would like to sponsor a student or family by being a tuition angel, please contact our Business Manager, Marian Johnston 630-615-7605.


Planned Giving
Over the past years many parishioners and friends have left legacies to St. Raphael.  Their financial gifts – both large and small – have made an incalculable difference in the lives of those who worship at St. Raphael.  These gifts have supported every part of our ministry – from our social outreach programs, spiritual formation, and the preservation of our Church and grounds.  Their legacy has become a part of St. Raphael’s legacy!  Learn More
