Pre-Authorized Donation Plan and Envelopes
All Saints parish has a plan by which you can make your
weekly offertory donation without having to deal with
envelopes and cash or cheques every Sunday morning
before Mass. Close to 130 parishioners currently use the
plan with some arranging weekly withdrawals and others
monthly withdrawals. If you currently use envelopes
please consider using the Preauthorized Donation Plan.
If you currently use the plan please consider increasing
your donation for the 2013. Forms are available in the
Narthex to do either of the above. For those using the
system, if you do not submit a new form your current
arrangement for donations will continue in 2013.
An announcement will be made as to when the 2013
envelopes are available. Thank you to everyone
who supports the parish through offertory donations as
this is the main source of income to pay expenses.
For some time now our audio system has not been
doing a proper job in projecting the fine work of our
singers and instrumentalists to the parishioners and
it has been a source of distraction with humming
and crackling during readings and homilies.
We have engaged an audio specialists to go over all
the equipment in our system and do a complete
setup, from scratch, to ensure it operates properly
well into the future. In addition, he will be
redirecting the main speakers so they are directed
properly towards the seating and the small speakers
at the rear of the church will be replaced with a
better quality of speaker that is designed for our
environment. We expect to have this work
completed no later than the last week of November.
