Do you want to support your local Catholic parish?
The parish is the core of Catholic life in our local communities. Their collective mission to spread to Gospel would not be possible without the generosity of parishioners who give their time and talents in service to parish ministry, and through their weekly offertory donations.
In every parish of our Archdiocese, the impact of the pandemic has been felt. It is important that during this time our parishes and priests continue to receive the offertory support they need to remain operational and in good financial health.
The most cost effective way of supporting your parish is by setting up a regular gift via Standing Order. To set up a standing order by your own telephone or internet banking, you will need the bank details of the Parish you wish to donate to. You will often find these on your Parish website or by contacting your Parish and asking for a Standing Order form.
Should you prefer, you can also contact the Archdiocese Fundraising and Gift Aid team who can provide you with the details you will need: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note: If you do set up a Standing Order on your own accord, please let your parish know, so they can reconcile their bank account and claim Gift Aid on your donations, if eligible.
Our churches benefit greatly from Gift Aid. Gift Aid allows charities to reclaim tax on donations made by a UK Taxpayer. This means the Archdiocese of Southwark and its parishes can claim back from HMRC 25p for every £1 you donate.
To register for Gift Aid, you can contact your Parish for a copy of their Gift Aid form for you to sign. Alternatively, you can download this Gift Aid form, complete it, and send it to GiftAid@rcaos.org.uk who will ensure it is passed onto your parish.
A gift in your Will to the Church is a wonderful way to support your local Catholic community and parish. Find out more below:
