Ways to Give


During the past fiscal year, parishioners, associate parishioners and visitors contributed 77% of all revenue. Every financial gift offered revealed the immensity of Jesus’ love for each of us.

As we come together as a community in Downtown Minneapolis, whether at the Eucharist, as a volunteer, as a parishioner or one who works downtown or is a visitor, we share welcome and encouragement to each other. We share our prayers for understanding, patience and peace at home, in our country and around the world. 

Your heartfelt gifts fund essentials such as heat, lights, Mass, music, the Sacraments, service to those in need, and all St. Olaf ministries. You make possible all that distinguishes St. Olaf as a downtown parish. You give generously with a grateful heart for all the blessings God has given you.
