If Mass is fully booked; please click the "Register" button for your chosen date to join the WAITING LIST. You will be notified automatically if someone cancels.

If you wish, you can make a one-off donation to the Sunday collection. These are voluntary and it is not necessary to donate when you reserve a place at Mass.

Some people already give regularly by standing order. We have added the donation facility for those who prefer to give via the collection, or are visitors, and because we have been unable to take the Sunday collection since March 2020.

Any donation is welcome, no matter the size, or how often. Only the donations secretary will see this information.

BOOKING MASS / NO DONATION: On the booking page under "Registration" please enter the number of people you wish to reserve a place at Mass for. Then proceed as normal.

BOOKING MASS / ADDING A DONATION: On the booking page under "Registration" enter the number of people you wish to reserve a place at Mass for. Under "Donation / Mass Offering" enter the amount you would like to give. Follow the instructions for making a payment. Then add the details for each person attending Mass as normal, INCLUDING yourself.

Making a donation generates an "eRegistration" called "Registration1" but this is NOT a booking for Mass. Each reservation for Mass also generates an eRegistration.

E.g. if you are booking for 2 people (including yourself ) and are making a donation. You will see

  • Registration 1 - For the donation.
  • Registration 2 - For your place at Mass.
  • Registration 3 - For your companion's place at Mass

There is more information about the impact of Covid-19 on Parish income at the bottom of this page.

The Impact of Covid-19 on Parish Income

Our income maintains the parish and sustains our outreach work.

Unfortunately, our income is down by 30%. Major factors include

  • No Sunday Mass collections since March 2020.
  • Other income that supports the parish is reduced or gone. (e.g. Hire income from Parish Centre and weekday car park permits not being renewed.)

Our expenditure has increased due to

  • The usual bills still coming in
  • New costs e.g. PPE, hand sanitiser, signage, metre sticks etc.
  • Streaming of Masses (setup and ongoing costs). Thank you for donations to enable this.

Thank you if you support our parish with a regular donation. It is much appreciated. We do understand that many people are facing greater financial challenges than before.

If you are able to make an occasional contribution, we are immensely grateful. Including, if you are in a position to begin, or increase, a regular contribution.

For more information please go to St Mary's website and select "church giving " https://www.stmarysbath.org.uk/parish-life

If you are a taxpayer, please consider using Gift Aid to increase the value of your gift by 25% at no cost to you. Contact the Gift Aid secretary Michael at GA.bath.stmary@cliftondiocese.com
