We are adopting the technology already in place in many Catholic parishes around the country. We now have the facility for you to make contributions to the Parish directly from here

 

In-line with our mission, 5% of all Dona’s profits are given to church charities.

The name “Dona” comes from Latin, meaning “gifts”.


OFFERTORY COLLECTIONS

As you will be aware the collections have dropped by approx. £500 per week due to the low Mass attendance. Fortunately a number of parishioners make their donation by Standing Order each month from their banks which means we are receiving £430 per week from them and this has proved essential in keeping a regular flow of income but not sufficient to meet our budget commitments

Would you consider setting up a Standing Order on a monthly, quarterly or yearly basis with your bank in favour of the Parish – bank details are Sort code:-18-17;     Account number: 17559642

This can be done online send your details to the parish office but also a form can be sent to you from the parish office, please phone with your details which can be left on the answering machine if no one is available. If you pay income tax you can gift aid your donation which adds another 25% on top of your gift.                                                                                                      Thank you. Fr Tom

NEW BISHOP FOR OUR DIOCESE:

There are Prayer cards available at the back of the church. Please pick one up as this prayer will be said before the Blessing. As you can see I have put it on newsletter aswell, which you will find on our website.

O God, eternal shepherd, who govern your flock with unfailing care grant in your boundless fatherly love a pastor for your Church who will please you by his holiness, and to us show watchful care. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, Who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, forever and ever. Amen
