Parish notices: Important News About Giving Online
You may have already heard that Virgin Money Giving – the online donation platform used throughout the diocese – is to close in November 2021. While the diocese is working towards alternative online donation systems, we thought it wise to make everyone aware of what this situation means for us here at St Bridget’s.
What does this mean for you?
During the pandemic online giving has become increasingly important for many parishes. We are fortunate to receive many one-off donations online. Some people have also generously set up recurring monthly donations via Virgin Money Giving to support the parish during COVID-19. From 30th November these monthly donations will be cancelled automatically by Virgin Money Giving.
If you are someone who makes an occasional or regular donation online, you may now be wondering how you can continue supporting the parish. We will be setting up new online giving tools but this will take a little time to arrange. But before we get to that point, it is worth remembering that the best way to support the parish is by standing order.
Giving by Standing Order
Regular giving is the financial bedrock of the parish. It also costs the parish less to manage than online giving so your money goes further. If you would like to support the parish we would ask you to consider setting up a regular donation in this way.
We also want to say a huge thank you to everyone who has continued supporting us during the pandemic. Thank you for your ongoing support of our diocesan family at this difficult time. We pray that you keep well and that your faith remains strong.

Maintenance Fund Appeal- Notice from the Finance Committee
Please see our appeal page for information about raising funds to help make improvements to the building and its surroundings.
We are a Roman Catholic church based in Isleworth. Isleworth has been a settlement since Saxon times. In the Middle Ages, it was the site of a magnificent Abbey of the Bridgettine Order. After the Reformation, Shrewsbury House was the location for one of the earliest Catholic missions in the south of England.
We believe that the Church is the main channel through which the knowledge and the love of God are made known and accessible to all people. Sacraments are an integral part of the life of every Catholic.
