The purpose of this blog is to provide an open forum for discussion of the aims of the society; news from the wider Church and details of Masses and events of interest in the diocese. The Latin Mass Society in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Middlesbrough expresses its full filial devotion and loyalty to Holy Mother Church, Pope Francis and Bishop Drainey.

Offertory Collection at York Masses - Gift Aid

When there were regular Latin Masses at the Church of the English Martyrs in York, all the organisation, including paying stipends to the priest, were made by the Latin Mass Society.  Consequently, it was appropriate for the benefit of any gift aid to accrue to the Latin Mass Society.  Envelopes were provided so that those people wishing to take part in the gift aid scheme could do so.

Now that the Mass is held at St Wilfrid's Church, and is a parish Mass. it is appropriate that any gift aid should accrue to the parish, So LMS gift aid envelopes are no longer provided.  People wishing to contribute in a tax efficient way can do so by making a standing order and signing a gift aid declaration.  Please see Fr Duffield for the form.

I was interested to see that the Church of England reclaimed £83million in gift aid in the year 2011, and 8% of all gift aid payments that the government makes are made to the Church of England and related charities.  The Cof E is remarkably efficient in exploiting this source of income.
