Standing Orders

Many thanks to those who have taken out standing orders, this has made a huge difference to the parishes, particularly in saving us hundreds of pounds in Gift Aid envelopes. In the next week weeks, we will be asking parishioners in St. John’s Caol if they would be good enough to go to standing orders. Thank you for your continued help and support in this matter. Fr. David.
