PLEASE ACTIVELY SUPPORT YOUR PRIESTS, SHARE COLLECTION AND YOUR PARISH USING THE DONATE BUTTON BELOW

Income to our parishes, our priests and our diocese have collapsed during the last few months, to the point where our diocese of Dublin will be making one third of our lay staff redundant and our priests have had a twenty five percent pay cut. Each of our parishes have been spending significantly more than we brought in over the last number of years. This is simply not sustainable. We need every person who supports our parish community to become a CONSCIOUS contributor under three headings:

A. Your Parish

B. Your Priests (Previously 1st Collection at Mass)

C. Your Diocesan Services / Poorer Parishes (Previously SHARE, 2nd Collection at Mass)

How Can I Contribute?

We will no longer be ‘passing the basket’ at Mass for collections (B) and (C) above. Here’s how to contribute:

To Your Parish:

This pays all parish expenses, repairs/maintenance/salaries/insurance/utilities, etc.

· Use the ‘donate’ button on the St. Mark’s Parish Website (stmarksspringfield.org) or our Facebook page [parishes of Springfield, Brookfield, Jobstown (St. Mark’s parishioners only)].

· Set up a Standing Order with your bank – Forms available through the parish office.

· Sign up for a box of ‘Family Offering’ envelopes.

· Fill in form on reverse of this sheet and return to office.

To Your Priests and SHARE:

· Use the ‘donate’ button on St. Mark’s Parish Website or Facebook page (St. Mark’s parishioners only for the moment).

· Use the First/Second Collection envelopes available in churches and make a weekly/monthly donation. Return to parish church/sacristy/any member of the parish team.

· Sign up for envelopes for 1st/2nd collections (priests/Share, diocese).

THANK YOU!
