We are pleased to inform you that our parish now has a solution to make donating simple and easy, while at the same time keeping the process safe and secure. Online Giving will be available for parishioners who would like to make online donations to our weekly offerings, as well as other parish collections. We are utilizing this technology for the well-being and growth of our parish community.
You can set up a recurring weekly or monthly payment, allocate different amounts for our different collections, and view complete, accurate financial records at any time. Those who wish to continue to use traditional methods of offering may do so, however, we ask that you prayerfully consider Online Giving. Some of the benefits for the parishioner include no need to write checks; you can give even if you are unable to attend services, and your contribution amount can easily be adjusted.
The benefits for the parish include: no check processing fees; more consistent giving with recurring contributions; online donation summaries for record-keeping; reaches a wider demographic of givers; and accommodates all special parish collections and missions. If you would like to sign up, click on the button above, and enroll in online giving!

Envelopes are provided for our parishioners to help support the parish. Numbered envelopes are mailed in 3-month intervals. Parishioners are encouraged to use numbered envelopes for their contributions. This helps with financial accountability and enables a statement to be prepared which is sent to each donor for tax purposes.
If you wish to help support the parish on a regular basis, you may contact the Parish Office (503-769-2656) to obtain your set of envelopes.
Thank you for your generous support!
Wills & Estates
We are stewards or caretakers of all that God has given us. As Christian stewards, we can use our Will as one means of expressing our grateful recognition of those gifts and the unconditional love God has shown us throughout our lives. A Will is a way to return that love to our family and friends and to the Church that has nurtured us in many ways.
When making a bequest to Immaculate Conception Church or the Archdiocese of Portland, be sure to include the full, legal, Oregon non-profit incorporated name: "Immaculate Conception Church, Stayton, Oregon" or "Archdiocese of Portland in Oregon". Once you have stated the incorporated name, you may state the actual distribution of your charitable bequest to be restricted to your parish, school, Archdiocese, and anything you wish to be designated.
Please contact the Parish Office (503-769-2656) for additional information or attend area Archdiocesan workshops on writing a Will.
