Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish

How Do Our Parishes Benefit

In many ways, we are just like a bank. We have all the financial products you’d expect, but there’s one characteristic that really sets us apart: we actively support Catholic families, schools, charities and parishes. For more information on how we can get involved within your Catholic parish, please contact us.

Other Benefits

It is our belief that when members of the Catholic faith are financially strong, the Catholic community prospers. The more we grow the more people we are able to serve. By making Fidelis your primary financial institution, you can expect prudent management in accordance with the teachings of the Catholic faith.

Some of the many ways we are committed to strengthening the Catholic community are by:

  • Donating our services
  • Helping with underwriting costs of various parish materials
  • Providing stewardship educational materials as requested

Benefits of the program include:

Stewardship and Tithing

Our Automated Giving Program can assist parishes in collection and management of offertory resources. It provides a means for parishes to automatically collect weekend offertory.

How the Automated Giving Program works:

  1. Parish opens a Fidelis account and sets up an automated clearing house (ACH) program.
  2. One day before processing date, for each parishioner participating in the ACH program, the church will send the ACH Department a dollar amount for ACH processing. It will need to include:
    • Name
    • Financial institution
    • Amount of offering
  3. Fidelis will process the ACH collections and deposit directly into the church’s account.

For more information, please contact us.

*A $24 fee is applied for this program once a year.

Tuition Payment Program

Our Tuition Payment Program allows schools the time and dependable funds to plan for the future rather than worry about monthly cash flow. We can help your school manage the financial aspect of things by enabling your business manager/administrator the ability to meet payroll, pay bills, purchase supplies, etc. By receiving a lump sum deposit at the beginning of the school year, an effective budget can be established.

Scholarship Testimonial

Molly and Hannah both attended Shrine of St. Anne's Grade School and Holy Family High School.  The family has been parishioners at the Spirit of Christ Parish for more than 20 years, and members of the credit union for more than 15 years.

Catholic Education is a priority for their family.  Both Molly and Hannah loved their years at St. Anne's and always knew they wanted to go to Holy Family.  Their grandmother and their dad both graduated from Holy Family and it meant a lot to both of them to be third generation Holy Family students.   Receiving the scholarship was such a great financial gift to their family.  Catholic school tuition is expensive and it was so helpful to have options like the scholarship to help with the first year of tuition. 

“It was such an honor to be recognized by the Credit Union for her hard work and good grades,” stated Molly Seaman.  “It was really special that employees from the Credit Union took the time to come to the awards breakfast to give me the scholarship. Knowing that my older sister received the scholarship gave me the incentive to work hard and obtain good grades,” said Hannah Seaman. 

Currently, Molly is a freshman at Cabrini College in Radnor, PA.  She is working on a digital media communications degree with a minor in business.  Molly made the Dean's List her first semester and is also being inducted into the Alpha Lambda Delta National Honor Society.  She joined the Catholic Relief Services group on campus, is a Cabrini Ambassador and will also be an Orientation Leader next year. 

Hannah is a freshman at Holy Family High School and made the honor roll her first semester.  She was a cheerleader this year and received a letter for her cheer activities and competitions and an honorable mention for academics.  She is in the French club and will be confirmed in April.

“We are proud of the girls and their accomplishments but we are so grateful for their Catholic education because it has made them better people, stronger in their faith and has also given them a passion for service and helping others.  Again, we can't thank the Credit Union enough for helping us with their Catholic education with the scholarship you provide,” said JoAnn and Tim Seaman.
