St. Andrew Giving Opportunities
The weekly Sunday collection is the primary parish giving opportunity that sustains the life of our parish. It ensures day-to-day operations and the continuation of liturgical, educational and ministerial programs. Parishioners are asked to give back to God in gratitude for the many gifts God has given them through a signficant contribution on a regular basis. The easiest and most efficient way to do this is through our online giving options.
You can also contribute though Sunday Collection envelopes that are mailed to all parishioners who are not registered for automatic drafting or online giving.
Special collections throughout the year support essential ministries throughout the world. You can support all special collections through our Online Giving page. Click here to see more information about each Special Collection.

- The Ann Graf Early Childhood Center Memorial Fund
Loving and educating children was one of Ann’s greatest ministries. Ann Graf faithfully served our parish in the Early Childhood Center for twenty years; first as a music teacher, and then as its director. She passed away on August 6, 2012. Ann recognized that sometimes a financial hurdle can separate a child from attending preschool. It is Ann’s wish that this memorial fund be established to provide scholarships for children in need. Please note “Ann Graf Memorial Fund” on the memo line of your check.
- The Bishop's Annual Appeal
The Bishop’s Annual Appeal is our opportunity to support the work of the Catholic Church in Eastern North Carolina and is conducted in every parish each year. The BAA raises funds throughout the Diocese of Raleigh and provides services that reflect our Catholic belief in the sanctity of human life, the dignity of the individual and the central role of the family in life and society. In the over 30-year history of the BAA for the Diocese of Raleigh, there has been over $120 million donated to support the ministries of Eastern North Carolina. This appeal happens each year during the winter (Januar/February/March). Click here to learn more about how to contribute.
