|2005 door to door Envelope collection ends|
Door to door
For a number of years now the method of Collection has involved great commitment and generosity on the part of a small number of people, our collectors. On your behalf we thank them sincerely.
Unfortunately many areas have no collector, nor is it possible to recruit one. The result is that we have decided to change the method of collection as from January 1st. All are asked to bring their envelopes to Mass, and to place them in the boxes which will be provided at the entrances to the Church.
Those who would prefer to make their contribution by direct debit may do so by taking a Direct Debit Form from the tables as you leave the Church and returning the form directly to your bank or to the Parish Secretary at the Parochial House.
The Parish also participates in the Tax Rebate Scheme which allows you to donate tax paid on your contribution to the Parish as a Registered Charity. Forms will be sent out to all eligible contributors after Dec. 31st. and you can help the Parish considerably by completing and returning these forms.
Overall, we feel that many people do not support the Parish through the Envelope Collection. Yet the Parish has run at a loss each of the last four years, due to exceptional once-off expenses. These include the provision of our Car Park, the rebuilding of
Finally, we thank you for your kind attention, and hope that we can all move forward together in developing all aspects of our Parish life for the betterment of ourselves and our town
