It takes financial contributions to sustain the church building and work we do. Please help by donating to the projects and keep the mission of the parish going.

Most especially during this pandemic. The order to shelter in place does not apply to monies needed for payroll, The Plants, regular bills, disinfectants and everything else it takes to keep St. Benedict the African running and ready for your return.


You will be redirected to the GiveCentral website, an online donation tool, that allows the parish to fundraise more efficiently and securely.
