Together, we work to meet the various needs of the parish. A viable parish requires careful stewardship of resources and relies on the efforts of committed supporters in partnership with our dedicated clergy, religious, staff and volunteers. We “give thanks” to all who provide the necessary practical support to sustain the parish.

There are many ways to support the parish. One traditional approach is regular financial donations or gifts. We have a variety of functions and methods available to allow donations and payments to be made to the parish. Each are briefly introduced below.

  • Planned Giving Program
  • 1st and 2nd Collection Donations Online
  • Regular Donation by Direct Debit
  • Pastoral Works Broken Bay
  • Card Donation Online
  • Electronic Donation Terminal
  • Bank Transfer
  • Bequests

Planned Giving Program

The Planned Giving program is an opportunity for parishioners to support Parish finances with a commitment to donate funds at regular intervals. Parishioners are able to participate via a traditional envelope donation system or can donate through monthly credit or debit card donations (see below).

1st and 2nd Collection Donations Online

Thank you to all those who contribute via their weekly donations. Our traditions associated with weekly donations changed during and following the difficult coronavirus period. Accordingly, we encourage donations through the Direct Debit option of the Parish Planned Giving Program above. You can also make individual 1st and 2nd collection donations using simple online transactions at any time.

Bequests

You may also choose to contribute to the work of the parish by making a bequest. A bequest is a gift of part of your estate made as part of your will. By making a bequest, you will provide support for many ministries provided by the Church. Your generosity will make a difference to the lives of many.

If you would like to make a bequest, there are different ways to do so. For example: a gift of a specific amount of your choice; a gift of particular items such as property; a percentage of part of your estate; a gift of that part of your estate that remains after you have provided for your loved ones; a gift of your whole estate.

In making a bequest, you may also elect to contribute to a specific important work of the Church.

Please contact the Parish office who will be able to provide further information and connect you with the parish priest and others who will be able to assist.
