Shepherd's Corner


With today’s feast of the ‘Baptism of the Lord’, we finish the Christmas season.


In past centuries the Christmas season, like Advent, was much longer, lasting up to Candlemas, 2nd February.


However, this feast is in fact wearing two hats, it is also the First Sunday of Ordinary or Ordinal (counted) Time and from Monday we enter into the first week of Ordinary Time, which will last a bit over a month this year before being interrupted by the seasons of Lent and Easter beginning with Ash Wednesday (17th February 2021).


With his Baptism, Jesus begins in earnest his earthly mission of the announcement of the coming of the Kingdom of God for all peoples and we will be journeying with him in this announcement in the weeks to come.


However, this mission of Jesus, of announcing the coming of God’s Kingdom (the Gospel) has continued now for over 2000 years. It continues with and through us, God’s Holy People.


Fr Andrew Lotton

First & Second Collections

First Collection - Continue to Contribute

The 'First Collection' is for the parish priest.  The contributions made are deposited into the Central Presbytery Fund from which the clergy are paid their annual stipend of $19,000 per annum.  With social distancing restrictions, parishioners unable to attend services have little opportunity to contribute to the stipend of their parish priest. 

If you would like to continue contributing to the 'First Collection' then you can deposit directly into the Central Presbytery Fund account, Catholic Archdiocese of Canberra & Goulburn.

  • BSB: 062 786
  • No:   000029248
  • Central Presbytery Fund   

Note: Please record your surname and parish name (Central Canberra) in the reference field when you make a transfer to the Central Presbytery Fund account: e.g. 'BLOGGS CANBERRA CENTRAL'.
