A special word of thanks to all who support our parish through the weekly collections, envelopes, Standing Order and individual donations.

We are all called to be Stewards.
As a Parish Community we endeavour to work as efficiently as possible to minister to the needs of the faithful. The generous efforts and donations of so many are gratefully received but for our Parish to thrive we can’t leave financial support to a limited few. Each family or individual can contribute through planned giving. There are many benefits to pledging regular amount to Sandyford Parish through Standing Order Forms and Parish Envelopes and by remembering the Parish in your will.
For anyone who signs up via Standing Order you will enjoy the following advantages.
The satisfaction of knowing that your funds are transferred automatically to the parish planned giving account so you don’t need to find or carry cash each week. If you are away from the parish, your gift takes place without you having to catch up on your return. It is a confidential, convenient and safe option, and saves the parish the cost of providing envelopes. Electronic giving is flexible, and can be changed or cancelled at anytime as necessary.
The Advantages for the Parish
By giving electronically, the parish is guaranteed your gift on a regular basis, budgeting becomes more accurate and the necessary cash flow is constant. It saves time and is much safer for the parish as there is less cash to handle, with less risk involved and it reduces the work of voluntary counters in the Parish.
