First and Second Collections - What's the Difference?

Each weekend at Mass the collections take place in our parish, one immediately after the other, at the end of the Prayers of the Faithful. Firstly a wooden bowl is passed around - this is the First Collection; it is immediately followed by a wicker basket for the Second Collection.

The First Collection provides, in the first place, for the priests of the parish: their monthly stipend, household food expenses, household electricity and cleaning expenses. This collection also contributes to a central fund which provides for the health care of priests and for the care and upkeep of retired priests.

The Second Collection provides the income for all the running expenses of the parish - staff employment, insurance, maintenance, maintaining and operating the Parish Office, liturgical supplies, water, waste collection, and most importantly - parish ministries and services.
