Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights
My dear sisters and brothers in Christ
Advent is a special time for preparing our hearts for the birth of our Saviour Jesus Christ through prayer, reflections, Christmas hymns, generosity, and good deeds. We also reflect on God’s great generosity to us, for the gift of His only son Jesus Christ, and all the blessings that He has bestowed upon us, His children. It’s also a time to rejoice in the opportunity for more people to come to know Jesus Christ and be aware of God’s presence in our lives.
During this season of giving, would you please consider a Christmas Offertory gift for the evangelical work of your parish in gratitude for God’s gift of grace and all His blessings?
Our parishes rely on our faith community’s generosity to sustain our liturgical, sacramental, pastoral care, and charitable works. Any gift, whatever you can give, will nourish our parishes’ spiritual vitality and pastoral care that brings hope and joy to our community.
If you can consider a gift of sustained support through planned giving, the best way is through automatic monthly online donations.
Knowing we have the commitment of faithful supporters enables us to advance our ministry and more widely share Jesus Christ’s message of love and salvation.
To support your parish with a one-off or recurring gift, please give via the form below, or contact your parish direct.
Thank you for your kindly supporting your parish’s mission and ministry. With your prayers and generosity, our parish priests can continue to be beacons of Christ’s light, love and hope to all.
Support your parish to share Christ’s message of love and salvation with all
Thank you for your compassion and generosity. May the Christ child bless you and your loved ones this Christmas and give you His strength and peace in the New Year.
