During the current ‘lock-down’ situation, we would like to say a huge THANK YOU to the many of you who have already donated on-line, via the diocesan ‘JustGiving’ link: https://www.justgiving.com/campaign/parishoffertory
Do please continue with your generosity.
It is a very simple process, but it is important to state the name of our parish – ‘Our Lady of Consolation & St Francis, West Grinstead’ – in the comments field, to ensure donations end up with the parish. Also, JustGiving defaults to a suggested ‘platform fee’ of an extra 15%, but this can be reset to any amount down to zero. Thank you indeed!
Alternatively, if you prefer, cheques in lieu of plate collections can be sent to the presbytery: Priest’s House, Park Lane, West Grinstead, Horsham, RH13 8LT. They should be made payable to ‘RCD A&B Our Lady of Consolation’.
MANY THANKS ALSO to those of you who have so kindly offered to set up Standing Orders in lieu of our Sunday ‘plate collections’. This is always the most convenient method for planned giving (for all concerned) – already used by so many of us at West Grinstead – and it is vitally important at this time. Regular Standing Orders can be for any amount, no matter how small – just please give what you can afford. This is a golden opportunity to express our sincere thanks for our God-given faith, and for our beautiful, unique Shrine Church and community. Pope Francis said ‘Generosity enlarges the heart’, and we are most grateful indeed for your generosity of heart.
To set up a Standing Order, please contact Geoff Callister via email: firstname.lastname@example.org, or phone Kate or Susan at the Priest’s House on 01403 710273 – thank you.
