Parish Giving

Thank you for wanting to give towards the needs of our parish!

See below for the many ways you can help out.

Giving of One's TREASURE

In-Person Giving

  • ATTENTION: While we are in the Covid-19 situation, collection will not be taken during Mass. Your parish donations may be dropped off during Mass times in either of the two collection boxes one in the Gathering Area and another at the west doors.

  • Donations are gratefully accepted at our Parish Office during regular office hours (see schedule at bottom of this page).


Periodic donations can be made in four ways:

  1. Use the online giving form available via the Calgary Diocese website HERE.

  2. Use the appropriate printed form (for Direct Debit or Credit Card payments) on our website HERE. Completed forms can be scanned and e-mailed, mailed via regular post, or dropped off at the Church. See more information below under "Stewardship of Treasure".

  3. Give by cheque - mailed in to: St. Mary’s Parish, 10 River Heights Dr., Cochrane, T4C 0N8 or dropped off at the Parish Office during office hours (or you could drop your cheque in the collection box at Mass).

  4. Initiate an e-transfer using accounting@stmaryscochrane.ca as the target email. Please refer to your envelope number (if you have one) in the message section of the transaction.

Participate in St. Mary's Grocery Card Program

  • Purchasing grocery cards through the Parish office or before or after weekend Masses also helps St. Mary's—we're paying down our mortgage!

  • Need more information? Click HERE . And if you'd like to volunteer as a grocery card "seller," go HERE.

WHAT DO CATHOLICS DO? We do STEWARDSHIP!

When the history of our generation of Catholics is written, may it be said of us:


“What good stewards they were! They faced economic uncertainty and shifting demographics. They faced threats to the church from without and scandal from within. And yet they kept investing themselves in the life of the Church. They kept praying. They kept coming to Mass. They kept participating. They kept giving their life’s blood for the sake of God and His Church, and through their efforts and the grace of God, the world around them started to change. Ever gradually, the culture of death became a culture of life.” From Our Sunday Visitor Stewardship Pamphlet, 2007
