Stewardship … How to Give … Offertory Contributions
Cash and/or checks are always accepted and most appreciated. They can be dropped in our drop box located on the north side of the Parish Center building (across from the mailbox) or they can be mailed directly to the church:
St. Timothy Catholic Church
17512 Lakeshore Road
Lutz, FL 33558
You can set up St. Timothy as a vendor within your bank account Bill Pay function. Your bank will automatically send your contribution to the church at the frequency you choose. Please use your envelope number as the account number.
Or you can give online. Click here to register for Online Giving. After signing up, let us know – firstname.lastname@example.org and we can be environmentally friendly by discontinuing your offertory envelopes.
Not a parishioner? Whether you are just visiting or have not yet made the decision to join St. Timothy, there are envelopes available to you in the Narthex of the Church and in the pews.
