Giving to Your Parish

The COVID-19 virus has impacted individuals world-wide.  St. Gerard's Parish is no exception.

As directed by Archbishop Don Bolen and the federal and provincial health authorities it has been necessary to pause in-person Masses, meetings, and activities in order to protect our parishioners from potential exposure to the virus.

One of the consequences of not being able to gather together for Mass is that our revenue has decreased.  However, our expenses continue.

While we continue to receive donations as part of the pre-authorized giving (PAG) program, this amounts to only 20% of our total revenue.

Several parishioners have been asking how they can continue to send their regular parish contributions.  Thank you!  We are most grateful!

On this page you will find several options how this can be done.


Pre-Authorized Giving (PAG)

After downloading the Pre-Authorized Giving form, please complete it, attach a void cheque, and mail it to:
