Collections and Parish Finances.
If your own present circumstances mean you can’t give money to the Church or can’t give as much as usual, Please don’t worry. If you can give, please do.
Collection baskets are available at the back of Church for those able to come to Mass. You can still use your weekly envelopes or you might consider setting up a regular standing order or making individual payments via your online banking platform or mobile app.
Please email the parish and we can send you the bank details, if you can help in this way.
