Parish Roll Plan Giving
“God blesses the cheerful giver”
Donations may be made by way of automatic payments or plan envelope
The two collections are credited to separate bank accounts. For that reason, there are account’s number.
The first collection or “priests collection” for the support of the priest, presbytery housekeeping and contribution to Diocesan clergy, is credited to the house trust account.
The second collection or “parish collection” for parish running expenses, church & presbytery maintenance and share of Diocesan Administration is credited to the parish account.
The bank accounts recorded in the form include a suffix comprising two digits. If the accounts are used where a three-digit suffix may be entered, the appropriate suffixes are 010 (parish) and 011 (house).
Automatic payments may be used for the first and second collection, or for both.
Parishioners may choose the frequency (for example, weekly, fortnightly or four weekly) of their donations.
The surname and Christian name or initials of the parishioner should be included as particulars under details to appear on the payee’s bank statement (which is the box immediately below the name of the parish’s bank account). This will enable each parishioner’s donations to be correctly recorded and a tax receipt to be issued at the end of the tax year.
When automatic payments have been set up, please advise the parish office so that receipt of your donations can be confirmed.
Parishioners who switch from using envelopes to automatic payments during the tax year will receive a tax receipt for the aggregate of donations made under both methods.
New envelopes will not be issued for parishioners who are using automatic payments. Unused envelopes can be discarded.
If you have any queries, please contact the parish office
Thank you for your generosity. God blesses the cheerful giver (Proverbs 22:9).
