At Cathedral, we never stop working to come up with new applications and opportunities for communication with your parishioners and ministry. We offer a variety of products and services to meet your unique needs.
Contribution Recording Service
Use Cathedral's Contribution Recording and Reporting service as a tool for accurate, confidential data management, and to better manage limited resources. You'll benefit from improved reporting accuracy, as well as less on burden on parish office staff. We can also mail statemetns to individual members, as well as provide your church with presentation-qualit reports at no extra charge.
How it works:
- Your Church removes oferings from the envelopes and verifies that the amount contained is clearly noted on the envelope face. Offerings not placed are simply noted on furnished credit slips.
- The empty envelopes and credit slips are then packaged in return addressed cartons (which we supply), and shipped to our offices once or twice per month, depending on volume.
- Utilizing our state-of-the-art technololgy we accurately and confidentially enter the figures and prepare the data for the next step.
- Detailed reports are available at the end of the month and include:
- Monthly Contribution Analysis - shows a summary of all collections by "class" and dollar amount ranges with contribution recording plus a percent of use of all classes of envelopes
- Pastor's Quarterly Report - lists each parishioner with their total contributions for the quarter and year-to-date
- "Better" Contributor's Report - shows parishioners who gave at least one contribution of $50 and over
- School Parents Report - shows the contributions made by parents who have children in the parish school
- Descending Order Report - yearly report showing all of your parishioners (contributors and non-contributors) from those who were most generous to those who did not give.
- Other Special Reports can be available upon request at an additional charge

Communicate with all your members anytime during the year. We can print (bilingual options available), address and mail for any occasion.

And including a reply card can increase response!
Chance Books are still one of the most popular ways to raise extra parish funds. Including a chance book in a special mailing can increase participation and response. Our chance books are available in bulk.
