    Youth Protection Class
    Any adult who works or volunteers to help with youth are required by the Diocese of Birmingham to obtain a youth protection certification. To take the class online, go to and click “online youth protection training directions”. There is a fee you have to pay, about $10, and it takes a little over an hour to do. At the end, it will display a certificate for you to print, confirming you have completed the class. Please print this certificate and get a copy of it to either the school office or the church office, whichever place you work/volunteer. You can fax it 991-5181, scan and email it, or bring it to the office and we’ll make a copy of it.

    Faith Direct Enrollment

    We are introducing an exciting program that gives you a new way to support our parish: “eGiving” through Faith Direct.

    The Faith Direct program gives you:

    • A convenient and consistent way to support Our Lady of the Valley by electing to use direct debit from your bank or credit card account.
    • The opportunity to support our parish even if you are absent from Mass for travel or illness. 
    • A solution to a situation I know many families face on their way to Mass:  where did I put my envelopes?!

    With the support of the parish finance council, we have selected the Faith Direct program for many reasons, including:

    • For 10 years, Faith Direct has worked with hundreds of Catholic parishes throughout the United States and is recognized as the leading eGiving program.
    • Faith Direct provides the critical third party security needed for this new way of parish support: this limits the liability for our parish and keeps your information in secure hands.

    How does it work? 

     You can enroll securely online by clicking on Faith Direct Badge above

    •  You can elect to have your specified bank or credit card account debited on either the 4th or 15th of the month for both offertory and any second collections you support.
    • Parishioners can elect to receive “offertory cards” in lieu of envelopes to be placed in the collection basket.
    • Many of you have requested we put this type of program in place:   I have complete confidence in Faith Direct and will be enrolling myself.  
    •  As a parish, we can collectively go “green” by eliminating the many wasteful envelopes that go unused.
    • There is no charge to parishioners for enrolling.  In fact, every family signing up with Faith Direct means one less package of envelopes to print and mail out – and that will mean savings for Our Lady of the Valley, which we can use to further expand our ministries throughout our community.
    • We consider Faith Direct to be a “win-win” program for both parishioners and our parish.  I strongly encourage you to enroll in this program today.   I am grateful for your financial and prayerful support of our parish.
