Pre-Authorized Giving Picture


What is the Pre-Authorized Giving Plan?

The Archdiocese of Toronto has established a pre-authorized giving plan (PAG) to assist you in your support of the work of Our Lady of Peace Parish through your regular parish offerings. This does not include special collections.  The work of our parish is made possible through the giving hearts of our parishioners. In response to changing lifestyles and demands on time and energy, the Archdiocese of Toronto seeks, through pre-authorized giving, to assist you in your giving.

Who looks after the plan?

The Office of Development of the Archdiocese of Toronto administers the Pre-Authorized Giving Plan for the parish. Please note that our parish office will issue tax receipts for all offertory gifts.

Why should I participate?

Advantages for the Donor: Convenience. Your offering is received automatically every month. You’ll have peace of mind in the comfort that you will provide continual support of your parish when you are away. 

Advantages for the Parish: Allows the parish to plan better through regular and dependable flow of contributions. Reduction of paperwork and bookkeeping.

How do I enroll?

We invite you to download and print the authorization form or detach from the brochure available at the church. Complete the form, attach a void cheque and place in a sealed envelope. You can place it in the collection basket or drop off or mail to the parish office. 

Monthly Giving PAG Guide

For example, if you usually contribute $20/week, to maintain the same level of giving, you would donate $87 per month. At $30/week it would be $130 per month and at $10/week it’s $43 per month. The odd amounts are because there are not exactly four weeks in each month, so it is necessary to multiply your weekly amount by 4.33 to arrive at your usual monthly offering.

Why direct debit?

We are implementing this Pre-Authorization Giving Plan at the request of several of our Parishioners who use it elsewhere and find it meets their needs and lifestyle. This plan is not for everyone, but we want to make it available for those who would use it.  We respect that giving is a very personal decision, but hope that the convenience and efficiency it brings will encourage the parishioners of Our Lady of Peace Parish to support it.   We look forward to your participation, and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Parish Office at 416-239-1259.
