Paying Stewardship Commitments with Automatic Bill Payment

Most local and regional banks allow for automatic payments under different program names: Online Bill Payment, Electronic Bill Pay, and so on. You can use these services to make periodic, automatic stewardship payments to Saints Peter and Paul Church (specify the Church as payment recipient). 

To set up automatic payment, you'll need to use the Internet - the bank's own Web pages. To help anyone set up automatic payments, we've gathered information from some (but not all) local banks.

Please keep one thing in mind when you set up automatic payments: Saints Peter and Paul Church does not currently accept electronic bank transfers, so your bank must allow you to select the option to have them pay by check. All of the banks listed below have such a check payment option, as of this time.
