Church Giving

Omey Group of Parishes has four churches to maintain, so money is always needed to keep these beautiful old buildings in good repair. however,in addition to this, our priorty and desire is to help those less fortunate than ourselves and we strive to do this by developing creative, artistic and interesting programmes centred around our church buildings.

You can support us with your financial giving in a number of ways:

  • by a weekly envelope
  • by a monthly standing order
  • by an annual subscription
  • by the collection at the church service

‘Structured Giving’ through standing order or the envelope system is encouraged, as it is more beneficial to both you and the parish.  For contributions of €250 per year from individuals (PAYE and Self-Assessed) the parish, as a registered charity, can avail of and benefit from tax rebates. Tax relief is to be given at a blended rate of 31% to all tax payers regardless of their marginal rate.  The Parish will issue you with an annual receipt and a form which will enable the parish to recoup the tax on the amount of your donation.  This means that a gift of €250 is actually worth €362.32 and a gift of  €1,000 is worth €1,449.28 to the parish.

We are very grateful to all those parishioners who participate in this scheme – it means a lot to us in terms of our annual budget
