There are various ways to pay money to the parish.  These may be helpful for those unable to attend mass due to the current Covid restrictions. 
Thanks to all those who have donated to the parish funds, money is still required to cover various parish expenses.


Offertory gifts can be posted through the presbytery door either in offertory envelopes or plain envelopes with your name or number on.  If you are not able to get the envelopes to us, please ring and let us know.  If you wish to change to giving by standing order, either permanently or during the current situation please see the information below. Thank you to those who have already done this. Please note, all cheques, for both Mass Offerings and Offertory Collection, should be made to “St Mary’s Middlewich” or the bank will not accept them.

Standing Order

If you wish to set up a Standing Order either permanently or in order to continue to make your regular Offertory gift to the Parish during the current situation, please contact the presbytery for details.    Email:
