THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS
A big thank you to all of you who help maintain the weekly offerings to support this parish and its work and upkeep; whether you contribute by cash, cheque or bank standing order.
Thank you also to those who have Gift Aided their contributions which enables the Church to recover the basic rate tax you paid on your salary, pension earnings or other income.
Here at Holy Cross we offer the Gift Aid scheme to those who donate by bank standing order, or by using a Gift Aid envelope. If you would like to join the Gift Aid scheme, there are forms available in the Contact Corner – you need a Gift Aid declaration and a bank standing order form. Once completed please hand both forms to Fr Doug. We can also claim Gift Aid on Mass offerings so if you have a lot of Masses offered throughout the year please consider
Completing a form.
For those donors already within the Gift Aid scheme, please let us know if your Tax Status has changed.
