Reminder: Like any family, St. James needs to make purchases and pay its bills, and to be able to do that we depend our pledge and "plate" donation income. During this time without a regular offertory, we ask that our members continue to give as they can in one of the following ways:


1) the easiest is to use the "Donate" button on this page of our St. James website.  When you are on the "donate" page, you can fill in the amount and specify type of payment source (debit card, credit card or Paypal) and whether you want to make this a recurring payment. Then fill in the requested information and in the "special instructions" section please add your pledge number or the other reasons for your donation (plate, altar flowers, etc.). That's it!
2) Use the bill payment method of your bank's checking account system. Most checking accounts allow you to add and specify St. James just like any company to which you pay bills directly through your account. There should also be a "memo" line to note your pledge envelope number on the payment.
3) Write a check and mail it in to the St. James office, at 76 Federal St., New London, 06329-6601, with the pledge number, or other purpose of the check, written on the memo line.
