We continue to be grateful for the support that members of the parish continue to give towards their local churches, both during times of gathering together in person and during times of worshipping at home. We are mindful that during the COVID-19 pandemic the vast majority of our regular church expenses have continued, including mundane items like utility bills. To ensure the continued financial health of our ministries, all members of the Parish of the Valley are encouraged to make regular offerings to their home churches. There are a number of ways that you can give:
- Donations can be mailed using the postal addresses provided in our offerings directory, available for download below. When mailing, please include your regular Sunday offering envelope with your individual number, and/or your name and mailing address for income tax receipt purposes. Please do not mail offering envelopes without first putting them inside a mailing envelope.
- Some of our congregations offer the possibility of giving through Pre-Authorized Remittances from your bank account (PAR). If you are a member of Holy Trinity Pembroke, St Paul's Cobden, All Saints Petawawa, St. John's Eganville, or St George's Alice and would like to sign-up for PAR or increase your monthly PAR contribution, please download and print the forms available below and mail them to your home church using the addresses provided in the offerings directory.
- Members of Holy Trinity Pembroke, All Saints Petawawa, and St George's South Alice can give directly to their churches online using credit card through our Parish website. Click on the church names in this paragraph and scroll down to the green "Give" button.
- Members of other churches in the Parish can also give to their churches online using credit card or PayPal through the website Canada Helps. Click on the church name below to go to their page. Your church will receive a cheque in the mail with your donation, less a service fee, in about a month.
