Please go to our website stbartholomewmanchester.org and click on parish giving. You have to create an account unless you have one already. Then, you can pay with a credit card by going to “schedule new contribution” and then go to “CCD school of religion”. Please choose Religious Education Tuition. It will ask if you would like to select more contributions, please hit “no, review and submit”. It’s a one-time payment and please put your child(ren)’s name and grade in the memo part of the screen for our bookkeeping.

We are working with Parish Giving to use our form on their website and hopefully it will be up and running by summer time. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

***If you are unable to pay at this time, please register and we can work with you on a payment plan or use our “Lynn and Theresa Fund” which is used for those parishioners who are unable to pay the R.E. Tuition.***
