There are a number of advantages to paying by standing order:
It helps you to plan your giving over the year by deciding a set amount to give each month.
Your offering will still be made even if you are on holiday or away for the weekend.
No more running around looking for change.
It’s a great way to contribute for those who may not attend church regularly or who live away from the area but would like to support the parish.

Parish Financial Report for Year End 5th April 2020 & 2021
I am pleased to present the Income and Expenditure Statement of the Parish’s Finances for the years ended 5th April 2020 and 2021, which I hope you will find self-explanatory. However, if anyone has any queries or requires further information, please do not hesitate to contact me.
The past two years have been a very difficult time for all of us. It has been especially hard for those of us who have lost loved ones and those of us who have suffered physically, mentally, and or financially from the effects of the pandemic.
In spite of all the difficulties encountered, the financial statement shows that you, the Parish of St Mary’s and St Joseph’s, have continued to give as generously as ever to the upkeep of your Church. This has been a source of pride and joy to me as your Parish Priest and for which I am most grateful and thank each and everyone of you personally.
Fr Paul Johnstone
