The First Collection provides for our parish priest (his monthly stipend, household food expenses, household electricity and cleaning expenses). Any surplus is forwarded to a central fund to contribute to any shortfall in less affluent parishes.
The Second Collection provides the income for all operating expenses of the parish: parish ministries and services, liturgical supplies, utility costs, insurance, maintenance of our Church, presbytery, hall and grounds, maintaining and operating the Parish Office and employment of the Parish Secretary.
As from 1 July 2019 all giving to this collection via direct debit or envelopes is 30% tax deductible. Receipts will be available upon request in July 2020.
If you would like to contribute to the second collection or vary your contribution, forms are available in the Narthex.,
