How do you give money (tithe) to your church? Do you do it with cash, check or an electronic funds transfer?

We have it taken out electronically once a month. However, I feel awkward when the basket comes around, so we inevitably give a little then, too.

I write a check. Then it's easy to go back at tax time and count it up.

We don't have an electronic option, just a collection basket; they do give out envelopes once a year with your name printed for tax purposes and send you a receipt at the year end for how much you donated, so DH usually writes a cheque.. but if we go separately and the basket passes, I 85% of the time still put a coin or two because I feel bad otherwise.

we write a check and put it in our envelope - then once a year we get a receipt from our pastor for tax purposes. If we forget one week or go to a different parish we just write the check for double the next week.

Our church sends out envelopes every quarter to registered parishioners and one of the options on the envelope is "I give by electronic transfer" and they say they want you to check that and use the envelope, they explained why, but if I did it, I'd do it badly, but it avoids the "awkward" feeling.

I however have not had a steady enough income (it changes too frequently) to feel I can do it electronically, so we just use checks normally, cash sometimes.

Since my husband is the priest of our church, and we are a small mission, most of the churches income goes to support my husband's salary. So we choose to sent our tithes to different missions in our diocese. The mission we currently tithe to takes paypal.

Your husband is a priest?

My friend is married to a priest in the Byzantine Rite. It seems like it would be a very hard life to be married to a man living out two vocations!!

I knew there were married priests, read about a convert once that was, but I've never actually met one. (or their wife)

The priest who baptized the four kids is married-he was an Anglican something high up, then was asked to convert to Cath-he works with the Archbishop of our parish, he just cannot have his own church. He is an incredibly interesting man to talk to considering he came from "the other side" lol It really gave me a neat perspective when I came back to Catholicism.
