On a more sensitive note, a few parishioners have expressed their concerns regarding the impact on the parish’s finances without any collections. Though we are unable to attend Mass during this period, it goes without saying that their continuing financial support of the parish is crucial for its ongoing operation and obligations to employees, etc. Even if we are simply holding on to our weekly envelopes with the intention of turning them all in when Masses resume, we still need to meet our parish’s obligations in the meantime.
Mindful of the financial hardships that the pandemic may cause for some people and the grief and sadness that will inevitably arise from the deaths of those who may succumb to it, we suggest, if within your means, online giving as a significant way of increasing contributions even apart from the challenges posed by the current pandemic. You can securely make contributions online from your checking account or credit card. You can find a link at the bottom of the homepage of our parish website or go to the Our Sunday Visitor Online Giving website that Prince of Peace Parish uses.
