Dear friends and congregation members,
You may know through the parish website at: https://thecatholictpn.org/ (or just google ‘catholictpn’) about the ongoing work at our church in Lyme Regis (The Catholic Church of St Michael and St George). The generous grants for this financial year from Historic England’s Cultural Recovery Fund and the Dorset Churches Trust cover most but not all the work to be done. This means the shortfall will have to be covered by the parish.
Parish Finance Group have been looking at ways of generating funds to cover costs and ‘The Pledge’ has been launched to raise funds to support this urgent and essential work.
Please do take a look at Father Anthony’s request about joining the ‘The Pledge’ which will really make a big difference to our finances in regard to the Restoration of Lyme Regis church. There is information written about the church on the website where there is also a regular update on the works written by Richard Salt, the Leader of the Lyme Regis Group.
If you are reading this ‘On Line’, Father Anthony’s Request, the Pledge form, the Bank Standing Order Form and the Gift Aid Declaration Form can be accessed below by a click. The Post Office letter which you may also receive will have these forms enclosed.
Please don’t be daunted by the attachments! They may not all apply to you and it is quite possible you already have a completed Bankers Order for the Lyme Regis Restoration Fund. You may be a tax payer and if you already have a current Gift Aid Declaration lodged with the office, then you can disregard this as well!
Thank you very much for reading this and also for your continuing financial support for our church. We now all look forward to our lives slowly returning to normal!
Peter Porteous, Parish Treasurer
