NEW OFFERTORY ENVELOPES Many people make their weekly offering in Mass using Offertory Envelopes. These come in boxes of one for each week, with some extras for feasts like Christmas. If you use envelopes and Gift Aid to the Parish, you will have a box of envelopes delivered to your door. But if you do not Gift Aid, you can take a box of envelopes from the back of Church. They are anonymous – no one will know who you are.
