Donations

While we will endeavour to keep parish outgoings as low as possible, please could I ask those parishioners who can afford it at this time, and do not currently give by Standing Order, to consider donating online, taking out a standing order or making a donation via telephone, using one of the following options:

Option 1: This can be done via the Diocesan website which can be found at https://northamptondiocese.org/donate/ Please indicate in the notes section that the donation is for “St Martin de Porres, Luton”.  Please note that there is the facility to Gift Aid any donations to your parish, but donations to individual priests are not eligible for Gift Aid.  Please therefore do not complete the Gift Aid option for any donation to a priest.

Option 2: You can set up a standing order for donations to your parish using your online bank account. The information required to make the donation is as follows.

Bank: NatWest; Sort Code: 60-06-11; Account Name; 46898093

Account Name: Northampton Roman Catholic Diocesan Trust

Payment Ref: St Martin de Porres, Luton

Option 3: ‘Giving Tuesday’: each Tuesday between 10:00am and 4:00pm, people will be able to call this number, 01604 712065, and donate to our parish. All you will require is to have your debit or credit card to hand when you call.  You can make a one-off donation to cover any missed Sunday offerings or you can call each week.  As only one person will be taking these calls if they are already on a call when you ring, please either call back a little later or leave your contact details on the answer machine.

Thank you for any help you can give.

A particular thank you to all of you who have taken out Standing Orders over the last months.  This gives us a surer footing on which to build for the future.
