We give our time and talent to the extent that we are able but we need more support to help grow our community. God is generous with us and we are called to be generous in return.
Purpose of our collections during the masses:
First Collection – is used for the support of priests and deacons of the Diocese.
Second Collection – is used to meet our parish running costs of the church and provide for ministry expenses; it is also needed to pay off our church mortgage. A Planned Giving Program is in place to help us with the running cost of the church.
Ways to contribute to our Parish:
If you would like to be a part of the church’s plan giving program, which goes to the second collection, an SJ23rd form is available at the church foyer or contact the parish office. The Parish Finance Committee encourages all parishioners to register for direct debit or credit card deductions instead of the envelop system
