Donations and Planned Giving
“Christ’s faithful have the obligation to provide for the needs of the Church, so that the Church has available to it those things which are necessary for divine worship, for works of the apostolate and of charity, and for the worthy support of its ministers.”
Canon 222, The Code of Canon Law, 1983.
A Planned Giving Programme has been in place for many years at the Cathedral. This program allows people to contribute, on a regular basis, to the care of the Cathedral priests and the Bishop and to the upkeep of the Cathedral itself.
Planned Giving enrolment forms can be found on the inside of the weekly newsletter. Contributions can be made through the traditional envelope system or by automatic payment.
By providing contact details and indicating your preferred method of contribution, a set of envelopes or automatic payment form will be forwarded to you.
One of the benefits of being enrolled in the Planned Giving Programme, as opposed to making loose cash contributions to the collection basket, is that your contributions are recorded each week and a tax receipt is sent to you at the end of the tax year (31 March). The Catholic Church is registered as a charitable organisation and there is no limit on the amount you can claim for tax purposes.
To enrol in the St. Patrick’s Cathedral Planned Giving Programme, please forward your name, address, phone number and payment preference (i.e. envelopes or automatic payment) to the Cathedral Office.
