The task of the offertory counters is to count the weekly offerings and to prepare for banking on the following Monday. The team also maintains records, which are required by the Inland Revenue in connection with Gift Aid.
There are normally three persons to each counting team, and ten teams who operate on a rota basis. The counting is done on Sunday morning after Mass, when the offerings for the whole week are counted and logged into the records. Note, Standing Order offerings are dealt with separately, not by the counting teams.
If you can, and would like to help, please contact Simon Doyle or Deacon Peter.
