You can support your Parish in many different ways. Joining in the Planned Giving is one of the most efficient ways of helping the Parish to budget for its many needs for the year ahead.
The Planned Giving system involves ONLY the Second Collection at Mass. (The First Collection goes to the Diocesan Clergy Remuneration Fund).

If wish to make a Pledge and support the Parish you will need to do one of the following:-

  • Fill in a MY WEEKLY OFFERING card available at the church door and, using the envelope provided with it, drop it in the‚‚ Collection Plate. You will then receive a box of envelopes to commence your payments.
  • Complete a DIRECT DEBIT Authority Form below, print it and sign it. These forms cannot be emailed to us as‚‚ banks require original signatures. Post, hand deliver or place the form into a Collection Plate at Church. You may also request a box of enveleopes if you wish.

If you are already on the Planned Giving system and you want to continue. You do not need to refill out a Weekly Offering Card but if you are paying by Direct Debit and you put a closure date on the form, you will need to submit a new form.

Thank you for your ongoing support.

Vision Statement

We are:

* a welcoming community which reaches out to all
* celebrating Christ's presence
* joyfully living out our Christian calling across distance and diversity

This vision states that as a Diocese, we aim to be a welcoming, missionary, centred on Christ, and each striving to live one's particular vocation. It is in living out our calling that we praise God, follow Christ, influence society and achieve the goal of eternal life won for us by Christ. In the parishes we have encouraged people to measure whatever they do against this Diocesan vision.
