Note

 

As you all are aware ,we are at midways of Financial Year 2022. Our respected trustees at this time would like to thank one and all unconditional and unwavering supports toward the smooth running of the parish particularly, through financial support. The Trustees appreciate those who remit their subscriptions and other donations on a timely basis every month diligently. But, so far we only have 110 families signed up for Electronic Remittances which is a very convenient and efficient way of paying dues on time. This also helps the parish to meet its monthly payments and daily needs systematically in a timely manner. We encourage and appreciate even more members to sign up for Electronic Fund Transfers which can be done seamlessly. Please contact our Trustees for the Electronic Fund Transfer Forms and sign-up supports. We request everyone to make their payments to the church in the upcoming weeks and months. Once again, prayerful gratitude for your support and participation.

 

Thank you all once again.

 

Stay safe and have a blessed week ahead!!
