Benefits of Being a Friend
Through your support, we can sustain quality musical outreach. As the Apostle Paul admonishes us: “whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things” (Philippians 4:8). As something experienced both communally and individually, music has the power to go beyond words and touch our hearts. It elevates our thoughts and desires to the true and the beautiful.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Is my donation tax-deductible?
A: Yes, all donations are tax-deductible.
Q: Why must my first donation be a check?
A: We need to get your basic information so that we can add you to our financial database, ensuring your proper tax credit. If you are a parishioner or have made a past donation, you should be in our system and able to make online donations immediately.
