MAKE A DONATION
Donations to our Parish are always gratefully accepted and help us to maintain our facilities & services that we offer.
PLANNED GIVING PROGRAM
Planned Giving makes up over 80% of our annual income, and is crucial for the Parish’s thriving.
Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Parish relies on the financial support of our community. The greatest gift of all is to give, and by giving we say thank you to God for his gifts to us.
WE NEED YOUR HELP
The Parish is always in need of financial support. We have a large staff (2 priests, 1 deacon, 2 part-time female pastoral helpers, and 4 part-time office staff), excellent facilities, and good programmes which all require money. Our mission as a Parish is to lead people to God. As well as Sunday Mass and the sacraments, we have many other spiritual and social programmes, all
Our latest venture is the basic introduction to Christianity course called Alpha, which has been immensely popular, and we hope to start two youth groups in September.
We are blessed in our parish to focus on our fundamental calling as ‘missionary disciples’ of the Lord Jesus. Groups like St Vincent de Paul (who visit the needy in our area) and the MSC Mission group (who work to bring clean water projects to PNG and the Pacific Islands) keep those less fortunate than ourselves before our eyes [missionary outreach]. Our two employed pastoral workers are crucial: Barb has a gift for evangelization, and Anne for outreach, especially to the needy.
