You are not permitted to register for more than one Mass per week in order to allow as many parishioners as possible to attend. When you enter the Church, please ensure you are wearing a mask, use the hand sanitising facilities available and observe the 2 metre social distancing guidelines at all times.

Fr Joe will be offering Holy Mass each day for your strength and protection during these difficult times. Fr Joe will also be visible in the local parish community, and is happy to give blessings to anyone who wishes to receive one.

Since the suspension of all public Masses and the closure of the Church, our parish is also suffering from a loss of weekly income through the Mass collections.

Therefore, during this time of difficulty, I appeal to those who are financially secure to continue supporting the parish on a regular basis. The parish depends on your generosity to continue its mission of proclaiming the Gospel in our community and it is your regular support that ensures the upkeep of our Church.

 Set-up a regular gift and pay by Standing Order.

Click the image below…

Once completed simply post the form to: Saint Thomas’ Church, Neilston, 70 Main Street, NEILSTON,  G78 3NJ

We will forward the relevant part to your bank on your behalf to complete the process.

If you are a UK tax payer, and complete the Gift Aid declaration, the parish can claim an extra 25 p tax relief on your gift, which means that the parish receives £1.25 for every £1 you give, at no extra cost to you.

Increase your current regular gift. If you already give a regular gift and pay using Standing Order, you might wish to consider increasing the amount you give. If so, simply contact your bank or building society to update the amount you give.

Thank you for your ongoing and generous support of our parish during these uncertain times.

New envelopes are now available for collection – please come to be back door and ring the bell – give your name and Fr Joe will leave the envelopes in the back porch, observing social distancing guidelines.

Envelopes for your Sunday contributions can still be posted through the parish door and if any more people would like to pay by standing order you can either pick up a form in the porch or download it from the website and return to Fr Joe to copy and forward to your bank. Thank you to those who have already in the last few days been concerned about the parish going forward financially and deciding to pay their contributions by standing order.
