WeShare FAQ

What is WeShare?

WeShare is LPi's online giving management system.  It is an easy way to donate to St. Vincent de Paul Church efficiently, effectively, and securely.  It is a means for you to support your church financially through one-time or recurring contributions. 

Can I still donate using weekly envelopes?

There is nothing requiring parishioners to use WeShare.  It is provided as a service for both parishioners and the parish.  It is a way to help busy families and individuals have one less task.

How does WeShare work?

This secure program works directly with your bank, debit, or credit card provider in the same way as other electronic funds transfer payments you may already conduct.  All transactions are processed electronically, debiting your bank account or charging your credit/debit card automatically for the amounts you designate.

When will my accounts be debited/charged?

When you enroll in the WeShare program, you choose the schedule to have donations processed.  Your donations will be processed in one transaction for the total offertory donation amounts you have designated.  St.. Vincent de Paul will receive your donations within a few business days.

 How do I make changes if I wish to do so?

 Participants in WeShare may make changes at any time to their account simply by going to the website and increasing, decreasing or stopping payments.  It is totally up to you.

 I feel uncomfortable having nothing to put into the collection basket.

You have two options in this regard.  Continue to use your envelopes and circle the 'we contribute through WeShare option,' or print the offertory slip provided on the WeShare website and put it in the collection basket. 

Is using WeShare safe?

Yes.  LPi takes security and privacy of both the church and its donors extremely seriously.  They annually undergo an external audit to certify they are Level 1 for PCI (Payment Card Industry) Compliance.  Their data center uses the latest state-of-the-art security measures resulting in an SSAE-16 Certification.
