Pre-Authorized Payments (PAP)
If you are NEW to the program, please complete the Registration Form and return it with a void cheque to the office. Please do not forget to sign the back as it is invalid without a signature. You may seal the completed form in an envelope marked Pre-Authorized Payment and drop it in the Collection Basket, mail it or bring it in person. The form must be in the office by the 20th of the month in order for it to be effective on the 1st of the month following. Please indicate at the top of the form that this is a new payment plan.

 

Hebrews 10:24-25

Let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near.

Acts 20:7

On the first day of the week, when we were gathered together to break bread, Paul began talking to them, intending to leave the next day, and he prolonged his message until midnight.

Matthew 18:20

Jesus said

“That when two or more are gathered in my name, there will I be also.”

What You Should Know About PAP
A monthly pre-authorized payment program for your Regular Collection Envelope is available to parishioners.
If at any time you would like to make changes to the amount, alter your banking information or withdraw from the program, please contact the parish office before the 20th of the month so the changes can be made for the following month. To change the amount withdrawn each month from your account or to change your bank account, please complete a Pre-Authorized Payment Form, indicate that this is a change and not a NEW request, and return it to the office. It is important that you sign this form, authorizing the changes. Please attach a “VOID” cheque if your bank account has changed. For changes to your personal information, such as address, telephone or email address please complete the bright green Change of Address form found in the lobby and drop it in the collection basket. This information can also be called or emailed into the office.
You need to keep the box of envelopes that you have now, and at the end of the year, you will be given a new box, with a new number for next year. These are for second collections which are not included in the PAP program. When there is a second collection, we would ask that you remember to bring the appropriate envelope with a donation. The new box number that you are given each year will automatically be assigned to your Pre-Authorized Payments.
Our weekly envelopes give you the option of designating the specific amount you would like allocated to the regular Sunday offering or to the Building Fund. Under the pre-authorized debit program you still have that option as long as you inform us. If you have not already done so and would like to allocate some of your donation to the Building Fund please let the office know by telephone, email or in writing.

In calculating your monthly donations it is important to recognize that there are 52 Sundays in a year. Therefore when determining what you wish to donate each month, it would be useful to consider what you wish to contribute each week, multiply that number by 52 and divide by 12. For example, $20 per week x 52 divided by 12 = a monthly contribution of $86.66. We want to thank you for your interest in this new program.

If you have any questions or concerns please call Heather at the office at 604-941-4800.
