Our parish has always been blessed by the generosity of its members in providing for its financial costs. Almost all of our income comes from the contribution of you, the parishioners. Your gift allows for the provision of our priests, staff wages, the upkeep of our buildings and the various costs associated with parish ministries. Thank you for your contribution to your parish, without which we would not exist.
There are several ways you can support your parish financially:
Our planned giving program allows you to nominate a weekly, monthly or yearly pledge, which you can fulfil using a number of different options. Planned giving helps us to plan ahead with an annual budget so that we have an idea of what we can afford to do. You contribute through planned giving by:
Direct Debit & Credit Card: to set up a direct debit, , or to set up a credit card payment , to download an application form. Once complete, please return it to the parish office.
Weekly Envelopes: You will receive a pack of envelopes – one for each Sunday of the year – which you can bring along to Sunday Mass to place in the collection basket. Please contact the parish office to sign up.
