Do you remember the good causes, and the regular appeals for all sorts of help that we had in church? The retiring collections for Cafod fast days, and the priests' training fund? We might have thought there were a few too many, but there's no doubt that they needed our support and our funds.

You won't be surprised to learn that they still need us ...you...more than ever, now that face to face requests are more difficult in this situation. Please try and help as much as you can, have a go at online giving, which is fairly easy to do. You will always have your favourite cause, and they will be really grateful if you make the effort for them.

And please don't forget Holy Family Parish at the same time. Our income has also been hard hit.

We're starting this new page with links to some of the more well known causes, and we hope you will take advantage of the opportunity to help them, as much as you can. They will be really grateful, and so will we... 

  • Offertory Envelopes
    Thank you to all those who donate via offertory envelopes. The new financial year envelopes are ready for you to collect safely from the back of Church from next weekend. Could I also suggest that you give some thought to changing your weekly contributions from cash to standing order and look at Giftaid on your donations if you are a taxpayer. It is a real benefit to the parish and much easier to administer. Please contact the parish office for more information.

  • 'Mary's Meals' - simple is best...
    marys meals logos

    On the basis that some of the best ideas are the simplest, Mary’s Meals provides one good meal to some of the world’s poorest children every school day.

    So we feed the children, and they learn and work better, because they're not hungry. Modest amounts of money make amazing differences to large numbers of children.

    Their work is named after Mary, the mother of Jesus, who brought up her own child in poverty.
    Mary’s Meals consists of, respects, and reaches out to people of all faiths and of none.

  • Money - always a difficult subject - Whilst it is more difficult to attend church in person, we have been asked by many regular envelope givers 'What can we do to maintain our giving in the light of the present situation?'. We're giving a few suggestions:

    • Take out a standing order with your bank. If you contact us we can provide the bank details you need and a form to complete.
    • And if you are a taxpayer, help us more by completing a GiftAid form, so that what you give can be increased by 25% at absolutely no cost to you.
    • The Archdiocese have an online giving page which is quick and easy to use, for both single donations and regular payments, based on your credit card. CLICK HERE to take you to their page and input form.
    • The Archdiocese have also initiated a system of text giving from your mobile phone. CLICK HERE for the details.
    • If you do not have internet access or are uncomfortable with these methods please contact us and we will make other arrangements to suit you

    You can understand that we still have outgoings to be paid, and we pride ourselves on prompt payment to our suppliers.

    Thank you for your assistance.
