Our Parish’s Future is a new initiative taking place in the parish. It is an opportunity for all of us to address the needs in our parish through planned giving. In order to meet our weekly bills and plan for the future, parishioners are encouraged to consider electronic giving such as a Standing Order when making their offertory gifts.
Our hope is to see a significant increase in our weekly collection as a result of this prayerful consideration. After we are dependably able to meet our weekly expenses, there are many areas of parish life we would like to enhance, such as deepening our work of evangelisation and making some necessary improvement to our church building.
All parishioners who have not yet been invited to take part in this initiative will receive a pack in the post (see attachment at bottom of page). Please read the materials carefully, and reflect on how you are currently giving to the parish. When you have considered your options, please complete your form and return it to the Parish Office or bring the envelope to Mass with you and place it in the collection. Please return your envelope even if you decide not to make a change. This way, we are aware of your intention to continue giving as you are currently.
Thank you to those of you have already returned your forms. If you have any questions about the initiative, please contact Fr Denis or see the volunteers who will be at the back of the church after Mass for the next two weeks (till end of July2015).
