The coronavirus pandemic, and its effects, mean that it is a hard time for many at present. Some parishioners who regularly support the parish may find themselves in need at this time. If you need help please get in touch with the parish office, consult online resources such as those at Citizens Advice or the London Borough of Bromley website here.
During these challenging times, and while public worship is restricted, we ourselves need support as much as ever. Our parish has fixed costs to meet, and we face a severe drop in income as we are not able to hold weekly collections at Mass. We want to be sure to be here for everyone during, and after, this pandemic.
If you normally support the parish financially in cash at the collection at Mass each Sunday, and you possibly can and wish to continue your financial support, there are four ways in which you can do this:
Standing Order: You can set up a monthly standing order with your bank to support the parish. You can usually do this online. The parish bank account is: name: RCAS ROSARY CHC ZZ, sort code 60-23-22, account number 53103483
Bank Transfer: one off payment: you can make your donation directly to Our Lady of the Rosary via bank transfer to:
Account name: RCAS ROSARY CHC ZZ, sort code 60-23-22, account number 53103483
Additionally, the Diocese have provided a JustGiving.com page here if you would like to give online. Please make sure you follow the instructions to indicate which parish you wish to support – in our case Our Lady of the Rosary, Hayes, Kent.
If you GiftAid your donation, please email the parish GiftAid coordinator Adrian (firstname.lastname@example.org) to let him know your GiftAid number, and the date and amount of any donation (or, for a standing order, the date each month).
Alternatively, if you use weekly envelopes, you may prefer to put something in these each week and save them up to hand in when we are able to accept cash donations again.
Thank you for any help you can give – it is very much appreciated. Thank you to the parishioners who have used this method to send their gifts in recent weeks during the pandemic.
