Frequently Asked Questions on Automatic Debit Services
Q: What are “automatic debit services” and what does it have to do with St. Catherine’s Catholic Church?
A: You can now authorize St. Catherine’s Catholic Church to automatically debit your checking or savings account for your weekly or monthly contributions.
Q: Does this service cost anything?
A: No, it is free and being offered for your convenience!
Q: Does it matter where my bank account is?
A: No. St. Catherine’s Catholic Church’s account will be with Mainsource Bank; however, withdrawals can be made from any bank as long as you provide an accurate routing and account number. There is no additional fee if you bank somewhere other than Mainsource.
Q: What happens if a deduction is made against my account and I have insufficient funds?
A: You will be charged any fees that your bank charges for a debit that involves insufficient funds. St. Catherine’s Catholic Church will not impose any fees.
Q: What about collection envelopes?
A: For the time being, you will still receive the envelopes. If you wish, you can place your envelope in the Sunday collection basket and mark that you gave electronically; however, this will not be necessary for the parish office to keep track of your contributions.
Q: What about “special” and “second” collections?
A: We plan to include the option to have these collections automatically withdrawn in the future; until further notice, however, you should plan to use the envelopes in your envelope packet.
Q: Who will have access to the information I provide to the St. Catherine’s Parish Office?
A: Only the bookkeeper and the pastor will have access to such information. All forms and computer reports will be kept secure and confidentially.
Q: How do I enroll in this service?
A: You can pick up enrollment forms in the parish office or from the church website (www.stcatherinesparish.org); forms should be submitted to Cindy Lamping at the parish office.
Q: When can I start?
A: You can start anytime throughout the year. Just pick up a form and the parish office will process it within 7 days.
Q: When will the automatic withdrawals occur?
A: Weekly withdrawals will occur on Tuesday.
Monthly withdrawals will occur on the first Tuesday of the month.
Q: What is a prenote?
A: A prenote is a transaction that will be debited through your account for $0.00 to verify that account information is correct.
Q: What if I need to make a change to my information?
A: Just pick up a “CHANGE AUTHORIZATION FORM” from the parish office or the website. Complete the form and submit to Cindy Lamping at the Enochsburg parish office. Your changes will be processed within 7 days.
Q: How do I ensure that the proper amounts are being withdrawn from my account?
A: You can review your monthly bank statements to help the bookkeeper ensure accuracy. Also, if you choose, an email will be automatically sent to you from Mainsource Bank each time a withdrawal is made. If you find an error or have a question, just contact Cindy at the parish office. The regular reports will be reviewed regularly to ensure accuracy of deductions; appropriate policies and procedures will be implemented to ensure accurate processing.
