OFFERTORY GIVING

Offertory

Parishioners have continued to be very generous in making their offerings at this time, despite many still being shielding and not able to visit our churches.  That is very much appreciated, given that our parish’s outgoings for the most part continue unabated, whether or not we are attending Mass.  The methods currently available for making donations are:

Donations by standing order

This is the most convenient way both for you to give and for us to receive, and to administer the Gift Aid if you are a taxpayer.  If you wish to know more about donating in this way, please contact Robert Vaux by email on [email protected].

One-off Donations

If you would like to make an ad hoc donation or simply prefer to donate by debit/credit card, please click the ‘Donate’ button below.  This operates using PayPal, and has been provided by Clifton Diocese.  Once you click the button, you will have several options for method of payment – by debit card, credit card or PayPal itself – and the option of adding Gift Aid: if you are a UK taxpayer, do please Gift Aid your donation.  Alternatively, if you wish to make a donation direct to the Parish account, please ask Robert Vaux for details.

.

Donations by cheque

Cheques should be made payable to Sacred Heart Tisbury, and sent by post to Trellis House, Station Road, Tisbury, SP3 6JR.  Please mark the envelope “FAO RPCV”.  Please do not send cash through the post or deliver it to Trellis House.

Donations by Weekly Envelope and in the Offertory Basket

For those now able to attend Mass, donations can be made in the offertory basket, which will be placed at the back of the church. 

Donations to Special Collections

Details of special “second” collections are published in the Newsletter.  Most of the regular ones are still not taking place, but several have been re-scheduled for the months ahead, and for which a second basket will be placed at the back of the church at each Mass for several days.  For the convenience of those not able to attend Mass in person, a second collection PayPal ‘Donate’ button is located below. 

For the month of June 2021, donations on this button will be allocated to Peter’s Pence – please see details below.  For this collection please do not use the Gift Aid option. 

For the month of July 2021, donations on this button will be allocated to Stella Maris.  For this collection also, please do not use the Gift Aid option. 

 

 

Peter’s Pence

The Peters Pence Collection unites us in solidarity to the Holy See and its works of charity to those in need. Your generosity allows the Pope to respond to our suffering brothers and sisters with promptness, love, and compassion, so God’s people will not feel alone in their time of misfortune.

The Collection derives its name from an ancient custom. In the ninth-century, King Alfred the Great collected money – “pence” or pennies – from landowners as financial support for the Pope. Today, the Peter’s Pence Collection supports the Pope’s philanthropy by giving the Holy Father the means to provide emergency assistance to those in need because of natural disaster, war, oppression, and disease.

Stella Maris

The Apostleship of the Sea was founded in Glasgow in 1920, grew into a world-wide pastoral and welfare organisation and has been supporting seafarers ever since.  Today’s seafarer is often in port only for a few hours. In these changed circumstances Apostleship of the Sea adapted to provide pro-active outreach by way of ship visiting to assess practical needs, backed up by a modern drop-in centre inside the docks, equipped with email terminals and telephones to facilitate contact with loved ones back home whom they may not have seen for nine or even twelve months.  Its name was changed to Stella Maris in 2020, to better reflect the way the charity was known by seafarers around the world.
