A Platform Built for Donations
Cathio also offers options for both recurring and targeted donations. By allowing donors to set up automatic payments and choose what their donation will be used for, Cathio aims to bring about a new era of online Church engagement and allow the Church to do more good.
Connecting Good People with Good Works
Dioceses and parishes can customize their own Cathio pages, adding information like Mass times, fundraisers, and ways to get involved.
