Our Parish Finances

 

Thank you to everyone for your continued financial support to St. Anthony's. An update on our Parish Finances has now been published by our Finance Committee. Please pick up a booklet from the Narthex for more information.

 

In short, if you wish to start using numbered envelopes for your weekly offertory, please give your name and address on the form at the back of the Church and we will provide you with a box of envelopes the following week.

 

The best way to give, especially if you are away a lot, is by standing order. To set this up, please pick up a standing order form from the back of the Church and send in the completed form to the Parish office and we will do the rest!

 

If you are a taxpayer, the advantage of using either envelopes or standing order is that we can claim back 25p for every £1 you give from the government. All you need to do is complete a Gift Aid Declaration Form (which is attached to the Standing Order Form, or will be inside your envelope box) and return it to the Parish Office. 

 

In addition to the above, the most direct way of supporting us is by making a donation. 

  • By monthly standing order (please download form below)
  • One-off annual contributions
  • Project-specific donation
  • Tax-free giving
  • Remember us in your Will

 

Gift Aid Declaration Forms are also available from the Parish Office (or download from the link below).  It takes just a few minutes to complete this short form.

 

Please visit or call the Parish Office on: 01753 267918 to find out more about how to make your payments or what the tax benefits are in giving to charity.

Tea/Coffee Morning Donations - Sunday

 

If you would like to donate any cakes, biscuits, tea, coffee, fruit etc. They will be gratefully received. Alternatively, if you are able to increase your financial donation, that would be wonderful!

 

A big thank to everyone that helped and supported our tea and coffee mornings. For the month of March We have taken a grand total of £60.54. If you are new to our Parish, please pop into the Crypt after Mass on a Sunday - we would love to see you. Our tea and coffee mornings are run solely on donations of various homemade cakes, breads, biscuits etc. so do pop in and support us and give generously. All donations recieved go towards the upkeep of the Crypt. 

 

Sick and Housebound

 

If you know of any parishioners that are sick or housebound that would like to receive Holy Communion, please let Fr Nicholas know or contact the Parish Office. 

 

Eucharistic Minister Readers and Counters Rotas

 

These are now available on the website under Mass Intentions and Rotas.

 

After Mass Tidy Up

 

We are looking for a small team of volunteers to help tidy up after Mass. This includes putting away the hymn books, Mass cards, kneelers and making sure the Church is neat and tidy for its next service.  If you would like to assist in anyway or join a rota, please see Fr Nicholas. 

Prayers for the Sick

 

Please continue to pray for the sick of our Parish and those that have asked for your prayers. If you know of anyone that would like a mention in our bidding prayers, please let Father, the Deacons or the Parish Office know.

Prayer to St Anthony

 

Saint Anthony, perfect imitator of Jesus, who received from God the special power of restoring lost things, grant that I may find {mention your petition} which has been lost. As least restore to me peace and tranquillity of mind, the loss of which has afflicted me even more than my material loss. To this favour I ask another of you: that I may always remain in possession of the true good that is God. Let me rather lose all things than lose God, my supreme good. Let me never suffer the loss of my greatest treasure, eternal life with God. Amen.
