Supporting our parish

Time, Talent, Treasure and Prayer.  There are a variety of ways you can help support your parish.  Although tithing means giving a tenth, we welcome generous financial gifts of any size within your means.  But giving is not exclusive to money.  The Church has a special need of your gifts of Treasure, but also those of Time and Talent.  Please consider getting involved in your parish.  Last but not least, we need your gifts of Prayer.  Prayer is a powerful tool.  Jesus said that if we had the faith of a mustard seed, we could move mountains.  Thank you for your generous gifts.  God bless you!!!

Envelope Giving

Envelope giving is the traditional way most parishioners are used to giving.  Many have chosen to move to pre-authorized electronic giving.  If you continue to use the envelope system, we are grateful.  During COVID – you are welcome to mail or drop off at the parish office located at 2016 Blairholm Ave, Burlington, ON L7R 1V4.  If you are a registered parishioners and don’t have envelopes, please contact the office at (905) 634-2485 or by email at:  Office Hours: Monday 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM and 1:00 PM to 3:30 PM Tuesday through Friday 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM and 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM.

If you are not a registered parishioner and would like to make a onetime donation, we accept cash or cheques. If writing a cheque, please make it payable to St John the Baptist Parish and drop your gift in the collection basket during Mass, drop it off, or mail it to the office at the address listed in the paragraph above.

If you’re new to the parish and would like to register, please click the “Register as a Parishioner” box below to fill out the registration form where you can select your preferred mode of giving.
