FROM THE TREASURER

We are so grateful to all the members who have been supporting us financially through your offerings, especially during the pandemic. We ended 2020 with Givings just slightly over what they had been in the “normal” times of 2019. That was a great achievement thanks to our faithful members. However, we often have a fall-off of Givings after the New Year. 2021 has been no different. We are hoping that the Spring will see a return to more regular giving. If you have not been able to give regularly, you can do so by:

  • Cheques mailed to the Church
  • eTransfer using marshallmemorial@gmail.com as the recipient address
  • Donate button at www.mmuc.org.
  • Start regular giving through PAD by contacting Henrietta, our Office Manager, at marshallmemorial@gmail.com or by phone at 905-648-4631.

Blessings,
Barbara Mahaffy,
