In church: A collection is taken during our regular weekly celebration of Divine Liturgy. Envelopes are available on the table to the left when you enter the church through the main doors, and most pews also contain a small stack. Please be sure to write your name, your address if a first-time giver, and the amount of the donation on the envelope if you would like to receive a tax receipt. Tax receipts are issued for donations of more that $20 over the course of a calendar year.
Online: It is also possible to donate online to St Michael the Archangel parish via the CanadaHelps website. CanadaHelps is a national registered charity that provides secure online fundraising tools to churches and other charitable organisations in Canada. Clicking the 'Donate' link button below will take you directly to our donation form at CanadaHelps.
Note that St Michael the Archangel parish does not collect any payment data for donations made through CanadaHelps. You will receive a tax receipt directly from CanadaHelps.
Bequests: Leaving a bequest is a process of giving a donation through your will. It is simply a distribution from your estate to a charitable organisation through your last will and testament. It can be as small or as large a donation as you wish. It is important that you talk to your lawyer about the process. In your kindness please remember St Michael the Archangel Ukrainian Catholic Church in your will.
If someone wishes to make such a bequest, the following clause may be used as a template to be included in a will: ‘I give, devise, and bequeath to St Michael the Archangel Ukrainian Catholic Parish of 4017 Victoria Avenue, Nanaimo BC, V9T 2A5, the sum of $ _____ [or _____% of my estate], to be used for the benefit of the parish and its pastoral activities.’
