Shepherd's Corner


I was able to join a Zoom meeting of the Campbell parish Vinnies Conference during the week. I have visited the Braddon Vinnies group also and these two overlap in some areas. It was great to hear the CEO Sleep out exceeded the $350 000 hoped for and donating reached $550 000. The Covid/Winter appeals also significantly exceeded expectations.  A great sign of generosity in the community in these times. It was also sobering to hear the average age of the Vinnies conference members in Australia is 74 years old. It’s great such wisdom is available in that ministry but we pray some younger members of the parishes will increasingly get involved also.  Thank you to the Vinnies group for all they do, it is such a relief, as the presbytery door becomes the next stop when a parish does not have such an important ministry. The Braddon Vinnies has wound down because of retirement of members so we pray this gap can be filled- if you can help in either area or Dickson please see me. God’s Blessings Fr Em

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 the closure of churches parishioners 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'.
