Tap Card

You may have noticed a new addition in the Church Entrance.


It’s a Donation Point Tap device and will enable us to quickly accept cashless donations. The device is aimed at enabling people to donate to our parish by using a debit or credit card.


This will enable parishioners and visitors to donate to the parish easily without cash – as many people nowadays don’t always carry cash.


The Donation Point Tap device processes a set donation of $10.00 and donors simply tap their Visa card or MasterCard to make a donation. It is fully secure and the screen will show if the card donation has been successful.


Your card must be held on the device to make a donation – it cannot read card details from your wallet or bag as you walk past and the device makes a loud beep sound when you hold your card on it.


Thank you for your ongoing support of the parish.
