My Dear Parishioners,
Hope that you all are staying healthy under the protection of our loving Lord. I remember you in my daily Mass and prayers. Please let us know if the parish can help you during these difficult times.
No doubt you are aware that our parish relies on the support of our parishioners to operate – parish salaries, programs and ongoing operating costs (heating, water, electricity, etc.) – are funded through the generosity of our parish community. It will be a challenge for our parish to maintain operations without the weekly offertory collection.
In response to many requests that I have received from parishioners, here are the ways that you can continue to support our parish at this time:
Contribute through pre-authorized giving. Click here for more information on pre-authorized giving. You can click here to download an enrollment form which can be printed and completed. Return by e-mail the completed form and a scanned copy or photo of a voided cheque to email@example.com for processing. Contributions are withdrawn from your bank account on the 20th of each month.
· You can donate by credit card, click here and follow the steps. Make sure you select St. Francis Xavier Church in the Parish field.
· You can contribute to the offertory via online banking. To do this, the archdiocese will need to send you a unique account number. Please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org In the body of the email provide:
o Your name
o Parish name
You will be emailed account information which you can use to set up the Archdiocese of Toronto as a payee in your on-line banking. Your gift will be forwarded to our parish. You can make a one time or recurring gift to our offertory.
If you have any questions please contact the Development Office at the Archdiocese of Toronto, 416-934-3400, ext. 540 or email@example.com. Thank you for your many contributions to our parish community. I miss seeing all of you at the Mass and I pray daily that we will be able to gather together again soon.
Yours in Christ,
Fr. James Cherickal
