From the Pastor's Desk
Dear parishioners,

I hope and pray that you are staying healthy – both physically and spiritually. Please let me know if the parish can help you during these difficult times.

Our churches are open for Mass and private prayer and we have worked diligently following guidance from public health authorities to make the environment safe for all.

If you are unable to attend in person, you are no doubt aware that our parish relies on the support of our parishioners to operate – salaries, programs and ongoing operating costs (heating, water, electricity, etc.). These are funded through the generosity of our parish community.

It continues to be a challenge for our parish to maintain operations without the weekly offertory collection. We have benefited greatly from the Canada Employment Wage Subsidy, but that support is scheduled to diminish after September.

Here are the ways that you can continue to support our parish at this time:

  • You can set up a Pre-Authorized Giving by contacting our parish office. Details are shown on the Pre-Authorized Giving page.

  • Drop off or mail your regular weekly offertory contribution to the parish office.

  • Visit our Donate Now page by clicking here. Choose your parish, Precious Blood Parish, Scarborough, amount of your gift – one-time or recurring and payment method – credit card or chequing account.

  • You can contribute to the offertory via on-line banking – similar to how you may be paying your utility bills. To do this, we need to send you your unique account number. Please e-mail us at campaign@archtoronto.org. In the body of the email provide us with your name, address, parish name and municipality. We will email you your account information which you can use to set up the Archdiocese of Toronto as a payee in your on-line banking. Your gift will be forwarded to your parish. You can make a one-time or recurring gift to your offertory. This is the most cost effective way to donate electronically.

    If you have any questions please contact the Development Office at the Archdiocese of Toronto, 416-934-3400, ext. 540 or development@archtoronto.org.

    Thank you for your many contributions to our parish community. I’m happy to see people returning to Mass and I pray daily that we will all be able to gather together again soon.

    Yours in Christ,
    Fr. Xavier De Pinto

    Pre-Authorized Giving Plan

    WHAT IS THE PRE-AUTHORIZED GIVING PLAN?

    The Archdiocese of Toronto has established a Pre-Authorized Giving Plan to assist you in your support of the work of Precious Blood Parish through your regular parish offerings (this does not include special collections).

    The work of our parish is made possible through the giving hearts of our parishioners. In response to changing lifestyles and demands on time and energy, the Archdiocese of Toronto seeks, through Pre-Authorized giving, to assist you in your giving.

    WHO LOOKS AFTER THE PLAN?

    The Development Office of the Archdiocese of Toronto administers the Pre-Authorized Giving Plan for the parish. Please note that Precious Blood parish office will issue tax receipts for all gifts.

    WHY SHOULD I PARTICIPATE?

    Advantages for the donor:

  • Convenience. Your offering is received automatically every month.
  • Continual support of your parish when you are away.

    Advantages for the Parish:

  • Allows the parish to plan better through regular and dependable flow of contributions.

    HOW DO I ENROLL?

    This is how you make your gift through the Pre-Authorized Giving Plan:

  • Decide the amount of your gift to Precious Blood Parish to be withdrawn from your account each month.
  • Fill out the form in this brochure and attach a cheque from your account marked "void". You can also print the authorization form by clicking here.
  • Put the form and void cheque in a sealed envelope, and place it in the collection basket OR mail to the Parish Office.
  • Those that already have offertory envelopes and wish to join the Pre-Authorized Giving program can simply put 'P.A.G.' (Pre-Authorized Giving) on the back of the envelope.

    Based on 52 weeks divided by 12 months
     
    How to Determine Your Monthly Contribution

    For example, if you usually contribute $20.00/week, to maintain the same level of giving, you would donate $87.00 per month, at $30.00/week it would be $130.00 per month, and at $10.00/week, it's $43.00 per month.

    The odd amounts are because there are not exactly four weeks in each month, so it is necessary to multiply your weekly amount by 4.33 to arrive at your usual monthly offering.

    WHY DIRECT DEBIT?

    We are implementing this Pre-Authorization Giving Plan at the request of several of our Parishioners who use it elsewhere and find it meets their needs and lifestyle. This plan is not for everyone, but we want to make it available to those who would use it.

    We respect that giving is a very personal decision, but hope that the convenience and efficiency it brings will encourage the parishioners of Precious Blood Parish to support it. We look forward to your participation, and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Parish Office.

    Cancellation of P.A.G Agreement

    You may stop PAG at any time by simply writing a letter with 30 days notice to Precious Blood Parish. If you would prefer to use a standardized cancellation form instead of writing a letter and your parish does not have one on hand (or for more information on your right to cancel your PAG agreement) please contact your financial institution or visit www.cdnpay.ca.

    If a withdrawal is not consistent with this PAG agreement, you have the right to receive reimbursement. For more information on all your recourse rights, please contact your financial institution or visit www.cdnpay.ca.
