During the current lock-down the parish is receiving no income – that is understandable – but the parish still has to be maintained and bills still need to be paid (less of them – thank God during this time!).
So might I suggest either:
a) Put your weekly offering aside each week and offer it when the lock-down is lifted
b) Use the new standing order mandate which needs to be either posted to your bank or taken to a branch when completed.
Alternatively, please use the parish bank account details from the mandate to set up a standing order using internet banking.
If you set up a standing order can you please contact the parish office to let them know and to indicate if you are a member of St Stephen’s or St Bridget’s parish, as this is necessary to correctly allocate your offering.
