Why Your Financial Help is Needed
Generous 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.

2. Sunday Collections During Mass
Each Sunday, two collections are held during our Masses (one for our Parish; the other for the clergy’s expenses).
3. Weekly Planned Giving Envelopes
These are available from the Parish Secretary which can be put on either the first or second collection during any Sunday Mass. These planned giving envelopes enable you to make tax-deductible donations for the Catholic Charities Trust (CCT), provided you make arrangements with the Parish Secretary. The CCT is the account in the Parish which provides financial assistance to various charities such as the St Vincent de Paul Society.
Please also consider our Parish in making your Will. Bequests provide a lasting testimony to your involvement with the Parish, and will provide benefits for generations to come.
Thank you for considering to make a contribution. Your financial assistance will help perpetuate the witness this place of worship gives to Christ’s love in the inner city.
