Supporting parish finances during the public health restrictions

OUR TWO COLLECTIONS:

*  the First Collection provides for Frs Colin and Thomas and also provides for the fund which provides for health care for priests, and supports sick and retired clergy
*  
the Second Collection provides for all the running costs of the parish and its services, the upkeep of our sites, the employment of our staff, and more.

 One-off special collections:

*  Diocesan Pastoral Works  (previously known as 'Charitable Works Fund' [CWF])   provides the funding for the support and training of our catechists for State Schools, for our hospital chaplaincy services and for supporting the special services provided by St Edmund's and St Lucy's Schools.  We are set a quota by the diocese for this appeal and we have to make up any shortfall from our own parish funds.  Donations to CWF are 100% tax deductible. 

YOU CAN ALSO CONTRIBUTE  ONLINE:    Please go to:  https://www.bbcatholic.org.au/donate/donate-now

Please ensure that you tick our parish of Lindfield-Killara as you complete the donation online form.


*  Easter and Christmas Offerings  :   
are a vital supplement to the First Collection income which provides for the priests of the parish and for the health care of priests across the diocese and the retirement care of older priests. This fund depends very much on the income raised by Christmas and Easter Offerings.

i. You can either arrange the direct debit from your bank account as outlined above for contributions to the FIRST collection:    (please specify 'Christmas' or 'Easter' Offering  in the 'reference' for your transfer)
OR
ii. Arrange this contribution on the same form as for recurring credit card contributions to the other parish accounts:   CLICK HERE.
