The restriction of public worship for much of the last fifteen months due to the pandemic has severely impacted diocesan and parish finances. The Common Fund, which is made up of the First Collection, Christmas and Easter Dues, is sadly at an all-time low.
The Archbishop has asked us to introduce a Summer Dues Envelope to help with this. It will be taken in the same way as Christmas and Easter Dues, giving parishioners an opportunity to contribute to the income that supports the priests of the parish and the sick and retired priests of the Diocese.
If you feel able to support this new Summer Dues, envelopes are available at church doors. We thank you for your valued support.
