Why Your Financial Help is Needed

Make a Payment or Donation NowGenerous donations are required for our church’s conservation, especially for the ageing sandstone. Many stones need to be replaced due to structural damage and leakage. Financial contributions also assist with the repairs and maintenance of the church and its furnishings, the running of the Parish Office, the expenses of the Parish Priest and the Parish Secretary’s salary.
