He writes: "Planned (jiving is a system being introduced into many parishes whereby all working members of a family undertake to give weekly a fixed amount at the Offertory in accordance with their income and commitments. 1 hese gone into this method, but haye decided against its introduction in this parish. at present. anyway.

"It would mean paying some hundreds of pounds to a business firm to substantially increase our present income. This can be done at no extra cost by each parishioner examining his conscience and facing his duty.
