Supporting the Ordinariate
There are two separate charities which support the work of the Ordinariate:
- The Ordinariate of OLW Charity. Confirmed Members of the Ordinariate and members of Exploration Groups should contribute directly to the Ordinariate of OLW Charity via their Ordinariate Group accounts (using Standing Orders, Envelopes and loose cash). Most of the Ordinariate Groups have their own bank account and are organising their giving at a local level. If you are a Group member please ask your Group leader if this is in place and, ideally, set up a standing order to that account using the specific forms for that Group. If the Group does not have its own Ordinariate Bank Account then Standing Orders may be directed to the central Ordinariate account using the forms below.
- The Friends of the Ordinariate Charity. For friends and supporters of the Ordinariate who are not members please support and donate via the Friends of the Ordinariate Charity. Further details here.
If at all possible please give by Standing Order. Giving this way helps the Ordinariate greatly because it:
- Removes the need to count, store and bank cash.
- Reduces administration time and costs for the Ordinariate.
- Streamlines the Gift Aid claim process.
- Helps the Ordinariate to plan its cash-flow.
Please note that the forms of giving below should not be used unless your Group does not have its own Ordinariate Bank account.
