Several of you have asked how you can continue giving to your parish during the pandemic.
PLEASE DO NOT WORRY. We appreciate the many difficulties and hardships that people are going through, with many out of work.
If, however, you feel you can make a contribution at this time, a standing order is the easiest option for your regular giving. This can be done via online banking, or by completing and sending a paper Standing Order form to your Bank. In either case, please contact Phil Hood on 01785 211701 and he will help you.
Alternatively, you may like to give a one-off donation. You will need access to the internet for this. Go to the Diocesan Website at www.birminghamdiocese.org.uk and click on the red DONATE button on the top right hand corner. This will allow you to give by credit or debit card.
How is CAFOD responding to coronavirus?We have launched an emergency appeal for funds, because the impact of coronavirus in countries with poor health systems will be devastating. Please visit the site to see how you can help.
