Supporting your parish financially

Are you able to help?

We are receiving enquiries from parishioners who have asked us how you can continue giving to your parish during the pandemic. Parishes still greatly need your support, even more so without their weekly congregations and visitors.

We do recognise that many parishioners may be in a different financial position than they were previously or struggling financially, and there is no expectation to give where you are unable to do so.

If it is appropriate for you to consider now, we have laid out the donation options available to you below.

Thank you, our diocesan family, for your ongoing support. We pray that you keep well, your faith remains strong and we look forward to when our churches can reopen, and Mass can once again be celebrated together in person.

How can I donate?

As parishes hold their income in bank accounts, standing orders are the easiest option for your regular giving – and you will no longer need to worry about having the right cash on a weekly basis, when we’re back in our parish churches.

Giving by standing order

Regular giving is the financial bedrock of your parish. It also minimises risk and costs the parish less to manage, so your money goes further.

If you have online banking you can set this up online, or you can print the standing order form for your parish found in the link below and post it to your bank or parish

Single donations

Although regular donations give your parish the best stability, single donations do of course also contribute to the financial health of the parish. We have launched an online giving facility for single donations to parishes and other diocesan funds.
