Finance

The Sunday Offertory collection is the main source of income for the Parish, including the maintenance of the Parish Priest.
Parishioners are asked to consider carefully the amount they give, relating their donation to their other expenses, to ensure that the proportion is just.
In addition, parishioners who are tax payers are asked urgently to consider signing a GIFT AID form. In doing this, no obligation is placed on the donor, but the Parish thereby has the right to reclaim the tax already paid by the signatory.

  • The Finance Committee (appointed by the Parish Priest)
    Under Canon Law each Parish is obliged to have a Finance Committee ‘to help the parish priest in the administration of the goods of the parish’. Its deliberations are advisory, and its members are appointed by the Parish Priest.
