Parish Finance Council

The PFC met on Thursday 2 August and they noted that the planned giving for the 7 months January – July was 11% below budget.  This equates to a shortfall of $11,900.00.

DID YOU KNOW: The second collection money is the planned giving component of your contribution? These monies fund the parish; pay the electricity, purchase the hosts & wine etc., and the pastoral care of the parish. 

20% of the first collection supports the Archbishop's office.  40% is paid to the MSC Province and helps support Aboriginal mission parishes in the Northern Territory and the formation of priests.  The remainder supports the priests of the parish.

Every parishioner is asked to give consideration to contributing either electronically or by envelopes as this allows the parish to plan for expenses.  There are planned giving forms on the small table in foyer.
