Offertory Collections:

Our primary concern remains 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 first weeks saw offertory income drop by at least 80%.

We would like to thank all parishioners who have already responded to this appeal by starting to give by standing
order, or by sending cheques, or posting through Fr Dennis’s letter box. We also thank those who were already
doing this. Due to the ongoing situation for the foreseeable future, your Parish is in need of your support. Thanks
to your response, Parish income has recovered significantly, but is still currently down by around a third. 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.

There is now a big ‘DONATE’ button on the top of the Parish website, and you may also contribute £5 to the Parish
Offertory by texting CHURCH OLSJ to 70500

Cheques (payable to Diocese of Leeds – Our Lady of Lourdes) 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
