Message for Parishioners for Support of Parish Offertories

Dear parishioners,

I hope and pray that you are staying healthy – both physically and spiritually. Please let me know if the parish can help you during these difficult times.

No doubt you are aware that our parish relies on the support of our parishioners to operate – parish salaries, programs and ongoing operating costs (heating, water, electricity, etc.) – are funded through the generosity of our parish community. It will be a challenge for our parish to maintain operations without the weekly offertory collection.

In response to many requests that I have received from parishioners, here are the ways that you can continue to support our parish at this time:

• Drop off or mail your regular weekly offertory contribution to the parish office.

• Contribute to our parish offertory by credit card. Please click here. You will then be able to select our parish in the drop-down menu. You can make a one time or recurring contribution to our parish offertory or other special funds.

• Contribute through pre-authorized giving. Click here for more information on pre-authorized giving. You can obtain a form from the parish office or you can click here to download an enrollment form which can be printed and completed. Return the completed form and a voided cheque to your parish office. Or e-mail the form and a scanned copy or photo of a voided cheque to for processing. Contributions are withdrawn from your bank account on the 20th of each month.

• You can contribute to the offertory via online banking. To do this, the archdiocese will need to send you a unique account number. Please send an e-mail to “”. In the body of the email provide:

• Your name and address

• Parish name and city

  You will be emailed account information which you can use to set up the Archdiocese of Toronto as a payee in your on-line banking. Your gift will be forwarded to our parish. You can make a one time or recurring gift to our offertory.

If you have any questions please contact the Development Office at the Archdiocese of Toronto, 416-934-3400, ext. 540 or

Thank you for your many contributions to our parish community. I miss seeing all of you at theMass and Ipray daily that we will be able to gather together again soon.

Yours in Christ,

Fr. Aegi, SCJ
