We have many Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion in our Parish helping with taking Communion to the sick and also taking Eucharistic Services in the Church and assisting with the distribution at the Masses. If you know of anybody who is sick and cannot make Mass through illness or is housebound, please contact FR Joseph.
We have a First Holy Communion programme for the children of the Parish each year. Please see Paula Jones.
We are a small group but would welcome new members. Experience is not necessary but enthusiasm and a willingness to learn are essential, see Theresa Murray for details.
This scheme allows the Parish to reclaim the taxable part of your offerings from the Inland Revenue, at no cost or inconvenience to yourself. There is no commitment to a specific amount of money for a given period of time. The donor uses numbered envelopes supplied by the parish Gift Aid organiser or standing order. The envelopes enable you to plan your contribution in advance. Alternatively, a standing order can be organised for a monthly contribution to the Parish, which saves on cash handling/administration and means your payment is never missed.
The Parish can gain a further 28p for every £1 contributed under this scheme. The Declaration can run indefinitely but can be cancelled at any time if personal circumstances change.
The requirements of the scheme are:
- The completion of a simple form – A Gift Aid Declaration
- The donor must pay income tax equal to the amount being reclaimed each year.
Please contact Chris Spence (Most Holy Redeemer church) and Mariam (St Dominic) and through the Church Office if you would like further details, or to join the scheme, or if you wish to organise a standing order.
