Remember that St Columba’s running costs continue even if parishioners are absent so please consider setting up a standing order for your usual Sunday Mass offering: St Columba’s sort code is 60-50-01 and the account number 79124313. Alternatively post a cheque to Fr Roy.
EASTER OFFERING The Offertory collection at Mass on Easter Sunday is traditionally your personal offering to the parish priest, an opportunity to say ‘thank you’ to Fr Roy for all his good work throughout the year. To make an offering this year, make an online or telephone payment from your bank using the bank account details above (give reference EASTER OFFERING) or post Fr Roy a cheque. Or you could always drop an envelope through the presbytery letterbox.
