"Let us with gladness present the offerings and oblations

of our life and labor to the Lord."

There are many ways of giving and supporting​ St. Francis by the Sea.

Make A Pledge

Pledging to St. Francis is a promise to give.  It can be a regular weekly or monthly amount, or the promise of a total sum for the year.  A pledge is not a binding contract, it’s your statement of intent to give.  Every pledge helps!

Make A One-time donation

Making a donation as a one-time gift to support a special program or event of St. Francis such as those listed below.

  • The Rector's Discretionary Fund: The Rector uses these funds to support various needs of both our parishioners and the greater community. 

  • Outreach: The Outreach Committee relies on gifts from individuals both within and outside the church.  It focuses on the needs of the Blue Hill Peninsula, and especially the needs of the area’s children.  Outreach supports the Magic Food Bus, the Peninsula Ambulance Corps, the Ellsworth Free Medical Clinic, Camp Bishopswood, Eagle’s Nest, Volunteers for Hancock County Jail Residents (VHJR), H.O.M.E., Emmaus Center, and Tree of Life. This past year Outreach provided 13 Thanksgiving boxes and winter clothing to H.O.M.E. and Christmas toys and special goods at Lent to Emmaus Center. It has also provided supplies to a village in Ecuador and ongoing supplies to Tree of Life.  

  • A Memorial: memorial gifts are made in memory of loved ones who have died. Unless the gifts are specifically committed, the funds are used for items needed in the church.

  • A Gift: a donation given to the church (non-specific) to be used as needed.
