Following the Finance Committee and Parish Council Meetings this week (held via video link), our primary concern is that of the health and well-being of all our parishioners.
However, we are aware that parish income has obviously reduced significantly since public Masses have been suspended. The past weeks have seen offertory income drop by at least 80%.
We would like to thank all parishioners who continue to give by standing order, and also those who have contributed via cheque or posting through Fr Dennis’s letter box.
Due to the ongoing situation for the foreseeable future, your Parish is in need of your support. If you are able to, please consider making your offertory by online banking or setting up a standing order, details of which are available on request.
You can now also donate by texting. To contribute £5 to the Parish Offertory, please text CHURCH OLSJ to 70500.
Cheques with details enclosed, including envelope numbers, may also be posted c/o Fr Cassidy at the Presbytery, St Joseph’s RC Church, Queens Road, BD21 1AT.
Thank you for your continued support.
