We Share Online Giving
Coming in August
Beloved Disciple is pleased to announce the introduction of a new electronic option for making regular offerings. Contributions can now be debited automatically from checking or savings accounts or from a credit card. Our new electronic giving program through VANCO Payment Solutions offers convenience for you and provides much-needed donation consistency for our congregation. This will replace our We Share online giving platform. We know many of you already donate online, and we are sorry for the inconvenience of having to change, but Vanco offer a more affordable donation option. Thank you for your continued support. An authorization form and a "Frequently Asked Questions" flyer are available from the church office.

ERIE — The Catholic Church has long emphasized its commitment to respecting life from conception through natural death. While Dobbs v. Jackson is an important ruling, we acknowledge there are many complexities involved with unexpected pregnancies and recognize this is a challenging moment for all Americans. It is our hope we can play a role in healing and unity.
Everyone should know how to help parents in difficult circumstances. They need significant support and true accompaniment. Many parishes in the Diocese of Erie have relationships with a variety of organizations and resources for parents in need. The diocesan Office of Social Justice and Life hopes to build on the work that is already in place, tapping into a network of advocates knowledgeable about a wide array of services and support.
The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has developed a new initiative, Walking with Moms in Need, accessible at www.walkingwithmoms.com. It is a step in the right direction.
Call to Action
“My heart is broken over the massacre at the primary school in Texas. I pray for the children and adults killed, and for their families. It is time to say “no more” to the indiscriminate trafficking of weapons. Let us all strive to ensure that such tragedies can never happen again.”
- Pope Francis (May 25, 2022)
