Donations to Parish/Standing Orders
Your Offertory Money

Financially we have a monthly shortfall whilst the coronavirus pandemic is with us. So a very big thank you to all of you for continuing to support the Parish financially.
However, at the present time many are not able to make offertory donations in their usual way so we have redefined the ways you can donate money to the parish for your regular Offertory, Easter Offering to Fr. Francis, Mass Intentions, etc.:
-    If you give by Standing Order and/or Bank Transfer, then please continue to do so.
-   If you previously gave by Planned Giving Envelope or Cash, then we ask that you do one of the following:
a)   Setup a new Standing Order, or do an online Bank Transfer.
Parish Current A/C No.:       00888991
Sort Code:                                    30 -93-04
A/C  Name:                                   PRCDTR LEE+STUBB 
Please give sufficient information in the transaction reference text such that we can identify the purpose of the donation, for example, Easter Offering. If you are registered with us for Gift Aid we will continue to record and claim it back.
b)      Give through the charity website:  
 https://www.giveasyoulive.com/join/our-lady-and-st-john       or click on the green charity button above.
Ignore the shop online part and go to “Support us (Our Parish), it’s free - Donate now”.
Via this route all money donated goes straight into the Parish Current Account.
c)   If you are unable to do any of the above then please accrue your donation (cash or envelope) and hand it into the Church / Parish Office when the self-isolation restrictions have been lifted. As we are unable to distribute the new set of Planned Giving Envelopes, please reference your existing envelope number.

Your continued Offertory donations are extremely important to the Parish.
