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.

Our churches are open for Mass and private prayer and we have worked diligently following guidance from public health authorities to make the environment safe for all.

If you are unable to attend in person, you are no doubt aware that our parish relies on the support of our parishioners to operate – salaries, programs and ongoing operating costs (heating, water, electricity, etc.). These are funded through the generosity of our parish community.

It continues to be a challenge for our parish to maintain operations without the weekly offertory collection. We have benefited greatly from the Canada Employment Wage Subsidy, but that support is scheduled to diminish after September.

 

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.
  • Visit our Donate Now page by clicking here and select the region for our parish from the map. You will be taken to a page that allows you to choose your parish, amount of your gift – one-time or recurring and payment method – credit card or chequing account.
  • You can contribute to the offertory via on-line banking – similar to how you may be paying your utility bills. To do this, we need to send you your unique account number. Please e-mail us at campaign@archtoronto.org. In the body of the email provide us with your name, address, parish name and municipality. We will email you your 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 your parish. You can make a one-time or recurring gift to your offertory. This is the most cost effective way to donate electronically

 

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

 

Thank you for your many contributions to our parish community. I’m happy to see people returning to Mass and I pray daily that we will all be able to gather together again soon.

 

 Yours in Christ,

Fr. Aegidius Warsito SCJ

 

Is Jesus calling you? Would you give your life for him?

The Church is blessed with a rich diversity of vocations; all of them are born from God as He calls us to participate in His work of redemption. If you are thinking about God’s call and trying to find purpose for your life, we are here to help you. Maybe He is inviting you to be a priest, a religious brother or sister, to serve the Church with love and generosity.

Come and talk to us! We will help you discern your vocation.
