Attached to this e-news is the parish financial summary for the year until the end of May. Thanks to those who prepare it. Which parishes will survive? This month’s Anglican Journal discusses the pandemic crisis in relation to church finance. Here’s an excerpt: “Peter Misiaszek, Director of Stewardship for the Diocese of Toronto says he has seen the need for online giving first-hand. “Looking at the data, it’s clear there’s a strong correlation between parish financial health and the number of donors using electronic giving methods,” he says. Given the number of parishes that have succeeded in promoting online giving, that has been good news. Before the pandemic, just three parishes in the diocese of Toronto received at least 70 per cent of their donations online. Now 26 per cent do.”
