Ascension’s PAR Program

If you have automatic withdrawals from your bank account to pay your bills, taxes or mortgage, then you already understand the PAR principle: Pre-Authorized Remittances.

Besides being convenient, using PAR for your offering ensures regular monthly givings to help our church’s ministry even when you are away. You will be providing our parish with a dependable flow of contributions, which increases our overall financial stability. Why not participate in PAR?

Your regular giving supports the local ministry of our parish.

Through the Diocese of Ottawa and the national Anglican Church of Canada, your gift helps people overcome poverty, helps train new ministers, equips leaders, sends chaplains into communities. You give support to Aboriginal ministries and remote parishes. In Canada and around the world, your gifts support vibrant and vital ministries for the healing of the world.

If you are already a PAR contributor, you can update your givings or banking information using the Par Changes Form.  Complete it, place it on the offering plate, give it to our designated PAR contact person Adrian Camfield, or leave it at the church office.

Becoming a PAR contributor is an important part of our worshipping together!

  1. Prayerfully decide what you will give each year, and divide that amount by 12.
  2. Fill out the Authorization Form and attach a cheque marked “VOID.”
  3. Enclose both in an envelope and place it on the offering plate, give it to Adrian, or leave it at the church office.
  4. The amount will be transferred from your account to our parish’s account on the 20th of each month. You can modify or cancel your donation, change how it is designated, or change your information at any time.

Adrian is gladly available for guidance and answering questions.

When complete, please return all forms to treasurer Adrian Camfield. Adrian is also available for guidance and answering questions.
