Happy New Year! Here is the January 17, 2021 Bulletin, featuring a new ‘Fr. Bob Writes.’
The parish is very appreciative of the donations we receive. Right now (due to the ‘stay-at-home’ mandate) it is very difficult for us to deposit cash and cheques. We sincerely request that you consider one of the following electronic options:
- E-Transfers from your bank – Set up an e-transfer from your bank’s online banking website, and email us to [email protected]. Please ensure to include your parish ‘Donation Envelope’ number (if you have one) and your full name and mailing address. You will receive a tax receipt from the parish in February the following year. Need some help with setting this up? Call your bank or the parish office for some assistance. It’s quick and easy!
- Donations through CanadaHelps.org – Click here: CanadaHelps.org to make your secure donation to St. Philip Parish or St. Clare Mission using your MasterCard or VISA. Donations made through this service are subject to a 4% transaction charge that is withheld by CanadaHelps.org, and the net amount is then remitted to the parish. It is understandable that many prefer not to incur a service charge; but we see it as a necessary ‘insurance’ during these COVID times … it protects our parish’s finances, as well as the health of those who would have to count and deposit money. CanadaHelps.org will issue a tax receipt upon processing the donation.
- Please consider donating by ‘Pre-Authorized Payments’ until things return to normal. You can start next month and end any time you want … just give us a month’s notice. Click here for more details and to download the form.
As per the provincial mandate, all Masses can now be viewed online by ‘Live-Stream’ (attend by clicking the ‘Watch Mass’ image above). Due to provincial mandate, it will not be possible to attend in person. ‘Mass Intentions’ will continue as scheduled and will be announced on the live-stream Mass.
May the peace and blessings of Christmas be yours, and may the coming year be filled with joy, hope and health.
