This convenient new system does not require you to contact your bank to sign up or to make changes. You can use any of your checking or savings accounts and the funds will be automatically transferred to our parish bank account.
Online Giving helps you maintain your giving even if you cannot attend Mass. You can choose to do a One Time Gift, or you can set up regularly scheduled contributions that are withdrawn on the date you specify in the system.
This system is more convenient for the parish than electronic checks from your bank. It’s convenient for you because you can make changes at any time, see reports on your contribution history and generate tax statements at each year’s end.
Online Giving is very easy to use and requires no special knowledge other than how to access the Internet. If you haven’t already signed up, click the link at the top of the page to get started.

American Heritage Girls is a Christian program that is dedicated to its mission of building women of integrity through service to God, family, community, and country. AHG programs focuses on six program emphases: Life Skill Enhancement, Girl Leadership, Teamwork, Character Development, Social Development and Spiritual Development. AHG Troop SC0490 is for girls ages 5 to 18. We will be having our first meeting April 21 in the Family Center from 4:00 pm to 5:30 pm.
Below is a list of meeting dates to follow.
May 19 – 4:00 pm to 5:30 pm
June 16 – 4:00 pm to 5:30 pm
July 14 – 4:00 pm to 5:30 pm
August 11 – 4:00 pm to 5:30 pm
There are five Program Levels in American Heritage Girls. Troops may offer all five Levels, if there are girls and Leaders available for each. However, it is common for new Troops to begin with only a few Levels.
AHG’s multi-Level structure means that girls from all Program Levels meet together as a single Troop at the same time, though they may split into Levels for certain activities.
Pathfinder – Ages 5-6
The Pathfinder Level is intended to give a girl a chance to try out the AHG Program and learn more about it. A Pathfinder girl earns necklace beads for attendance, participation and Bible verse memorization while learning the four parts of the AHG Oath. She may earn the Fanny Crosby Award upon completion of this Level.
Tenderheart – Ages 6-9
A Tenderheart earns Badges and Sports Pins in any of the six Frontiers of Skill and receives activity patches for participating in Troop activities or special events. She may earn the Sacagawea Award for achieving the highest level of skill and service at this Level. Blue Service Stars are awarded for every 5 hours of community service.
Explorer – Ages 9-12
An Explorer earns Badges and Sports Pins in any of the six Frontiers of Skill and receives activity patches for participating in Troop activities or special events. She may earn the Lewis and Clark Award for achieving the highest level of skill and service at this Level. Red Service Stars are awarded for every 10 hours of community service. Explorers are allowed to participate in overnight camping events.
Pioneer – Ages 12-14
A Pioneer continues to earn Badges, Sports Pins, Service Stars and activity patches. She may earn the Harriet Tubman Award for achieving the highest level of skill and service at this Level. White Service Stars are awarded for every 15 hours of community service. A Pioneer is also eligible for the roles of Camp or Event Aide. The Pioneer Level is where girls really begin to show leadership skills by assisting their leaders with planning, organizing and staffing special events for AHG in the community or within their Troop.
Patriot – Ages 14-18
Patriot is the highest Program Level in AHG. A Patriot still earns Badges, Sports Pins, Service Stars and activity patches. She may earn the Dolley Madison Award for achieving the highest level of skill and service at this Level. Yellow Service Stars are awarded for every 20 hours of community service. Patriot girls plan and carry out activities with Unit Leaders who function as “facilitators”, allowing girls to make decisions on a regular basis.
Patriot Level girls may go above and beyond to earn the highest award for American Heritage Girls, The Stars & Stripes Award . This is the most prestigious of awards, and it requires a great deal of time, sacrifice and devotion to achieve this award.
