Tuesday, 07 May 2019 12:05


Welcome to the final week of our Parish Stewardship Program.

In recent weeks we have reflected on:

  • The role of faith in our lives
  • The importance of coming together to celebrate the Eucharist each weekend
  • Our commitment to growing in faith

We have also considered our parish as a community of faith:

  • Are we a place of welcome?
  • Do we have a clear mission to live the values of the Gospel?
  • Am I making my contribution to parish life by being involved in our Groups & Ministries?

This week brings it all together. We look to the future imagining what sort of parish we want to be. Led by the Lord, we're filled with hope, but we need the support and contribution of every individual if we are to fulfil God's plan for us.

This week we ask you to finalise your commitments by:

  • Signing up for a parish group or ministry
  • Making your meaningful pledge of financial support to the Stewardship Program.

Fr Michael


Leadership Team Thoughts

Why do you think it's important to support your Parish financially through our Parish Stewardship Program?

"I know I'm playing my part as having a vibrant parish is a project close to my heart"

"Financial support ensures that our parish community can prosper and continue"

"It's a practical commitment of demonstrating faith and support. Without the money to run programs, keep the lights on and maintain our buildings, we wouldn't have a central place to gather, grow and support each other"

"Supporting our parish Stewardship Program by committing financially, allows the planning and building of the parishes future"

"Supporting the parish financially through the Parish Stewardship Program helps to meet the day to day expenditure of the parish"

"We take a lot for granted, our parish, our parish priest etc. even though these have diminished for various reasons and despite the challenges facing the Church at this time, I'm sure our vibrant parish community would want to preserve all it has and supporting the Stewardship Program would allow us to do that"
