Here at St. Joseph Parish, we are so grateful to the many parishioners and benefactors who so graciously donate their time, talent and treasure to build the kingdom of God.

With regard to finances, there are a few ways to donate to the parish

  1. Register with the parish and receive parish envelopes – to assist you with giving on a weekly basis and receive a tax receipt at the end of the year.
  2. Drop into the parish office and leave an offering with any member of the Pastoral Team – receiving credit once again and a tax receipt is issued at year end.
  3. Sign up for giving electronically – through an etransfer.  Any funds given will be credited and a tax receipt is issued at year end.  Please see the steps to send an etransfer to the parish

Send an etransfer to the parish email for purposes of etransfers only –  

Note – you are asked NOT to attach a security question or password to the etransfer.  Please include your envelope number in the message area if you have one.  If you do not have a registration number, please include your full mailing address.  You will receive an email back confirming your gift which will state “RCEC – St. Catharines was deposited.” 

Thank you in advance for your generosity – as a community called to serve God and build His kingdom here in Grimsby, the Diocese of St. Catharines and our world!

Special Collections

For those who are regular envelope users, you might be aware of the special collections that take place throughout the year. Some of these go towards specific charities and causes while some are directed to specific programs at the church including facilities maintenance. It can be easy to forget about these collections without the use of envelopes so attached you will see a list of the upcoming collections remaining for this year as well as next. Thank you for your generosity towards these special collections.


A huge thank you to all of our advertisers for continuing to support the mission of our Parish! Please consider supporting them as well!
