“Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you tells him, ‘Go in peace. Stay warm and well fed,’ but does not provide for his physical needs, what good is that? So faith without works is dead.” Epistle of Saint James 2:17-18.
Monetary donations will be sent directly to a Byzantine Catholic priest in Slovakia, Father Ján Lemeš, Archpriest (Protojerej) of the Greek Catholic Eparchy of Košice, who will then distribute it to refugees in dire need in Ukraine.
We use Tithe.ly to accept donations using credit or debit cards or ACH bank transfer. You can give by clicking the button below, and through the Tithe.ly mobile app.
Tithe.ly charges a processing fee on your donation (Credit/Debit Card: 2.9% + .30¢, ACH/Bank: 1% + .30¢, Amex: 3.5% + .30¢). When you donate, you can click “Cover Fees” to cover these processing fees. When you choose to cover the fees, your total gift is increased, so that we receive your desired amount. If you were to donate $100 on a Visa card, for example, and did not choose to cover the fees, you’d be charged $100 and our church would receive a deposit of $96.80. If you did choose to cover the fees, you’d be charged $103.30 and our church would receive a deposit of $100.
Alternatively, you may send a check to our parish, payable to “St. John the Baptist Byzantine Catholic Church” with “refugees” in the memo. Mail the check to St. John the Baptist Byzantine Catholic Church, 526 Church St. Wilkes-Barre Township, PA.
