Supporting Our Parish Financially
As you would understand, a large proportion of our Parish operating income was received via weekly donations as we gathered in prayer. Now, our gatherings are limited. We therefore need to turn to alternatives.
There are three primary methods available that allow you to continue with your Parish donations. The first is our planned giving program via a direct debit authority. You can enter your details on-line and the Parish will debit a card account for you on a regular basis. The second is an on-line method for you to make a Parish donation at any time as a single individual transaction. This process uses a Commonwealth Bank facility (known as BPoint) to debit a card account.The third method is to make a bank transfer directly to the Parish bank account.
These processes are simple on-line transactions under your control. The link below provides further information and will allow you to select one of these transaction methods.
As you know, the normal donation program via the collection when we gather is in two parts:
- The First Collection provides for the support of our clergy and supports a Broken Bay fund providing health and retirement needs for our clergy.
- The Second Collection provides for the operational costs of the Parish and its services.
Once again, we thank you for your generosity and continued support. We rely on your contributions to maintain our mission and it is particularly important at this time.
We ask you to keep praying for our troubled world and most importantly, know that our Parish team is praying for you.
Please contact the Parish office if you need further information or have any questions.
