Supporting the Parish

In these circumstances, we would like to invite those parishioners who normally give to the weekly collection at Sunday Mass, either in envelopes or cash, and feel able to continue to do so, to consider setting up a monthly standing order for an equivalent amount. Please, contact us by email (blessed@rcaol.org.uk) or phone (0151 474 2682) and we will provide you with the relevant account details.

 In order to continue to run the parish in the smooth way as it was before the lockdown (ie. having a full time pastoral assistant in the office and having the office opened five days a week), I would ask you to consider to continue to support the parish financially on a weekly basis -as you have generously done in the past- by either sending your offering by cheque or setting up a standing order at your bank or making a bank transfer. I will give the details of the parish bank account by phone or email at your request.

 Many thanks for your ongoing support and prayers during this difficult time.

Fr Sergio, P.P.

ONLINE GIVING TO SUPPORT YOUR PARISH CHURCH

The Archdiocesan online giving website is now ready to be used and can receive both one-off and regular monthly donations.

Unique parish specific link.

https://donate.liverpoolcatholic.org.uk/blessed-sacrament-aintree

By clicking on this link those wishing to donate will be able to choose between one off or recurring donations. These will be UK Gift Aid compatible. While these facilities remove the need for counting, bagging, recording and banking weekly collections during the current crisis, they will also reduce the administrative burden on parishes in the long term.

Online giving website

Each parish has its own unique link on the website and a photograph of your church is shown to provide additional reassurance to donors that they are donating to their parish. All donations will go to the parish selected by the donor. The link to the page for your parish (also known as a URL) is given below and can be copied and pasted into your newsletter, parish website or livestreaming.
