Online Giving - Coronavirus
Tuesday 31st March 2020
With the closure of our Church, the Coronavirus is now starting to affect us materially as well as spiritually.
We understand that in these difficult times, incomes and businesses are under pressure, but if you are able to, please carry on being as generous as ever.
Although the parish is doing its best to reduce costs, life must go on and bills must be paid.
A good many parishioners give via standing order, cheques or weekly envelopes. If you can do this, it simplifies the admin and is great for self-distancing! For more details email firstname.lastname@example.org
Recognising the current Coronavirus challenge, the Diocese has set up a web page for online giving. Details are included below. Bill

Parish Fundraising during the Covid-19 pandemic
Online donations for parishes
During this challenging time, where we are unable to attend Mass together, you may be worried about your offertory. The Diocese has launched an online ‘parish offertory support campaign’ so that parishioners can still make their offertory donation if they wish.
The web link for this donation page is:
Why is it a Diocesan Account?
As all parishes in the diocese share the same charity number this means we can only have one JustGiving account. A shared ‘offertory support campaign’ is the simplest way to provide an online service for us all. A single Diocesan account also reduces the parish admin required, making it as easy as possible for parishes.
How do I make sure the donation comes to the parish?
You will see on the offertory support campaign page there are some simple steps for the parishioner to follow when donating.
How will we receive the money?
The money will come in centrally and then sent to the parishes accordingly. This is why it is important parishioners name their parish, area or priest when donating.
