My dear sisters and brothers in Christ
May this Christmas bring you all comfort, joy and peace, and inspire us all to be the love of Jesus to every person.
As we await the coming of Jesus at Christmas, Advent is the perfect time to 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.
Christmas is 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.
If you can manage to do so, 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 - and we are ever grateful for your faithful support.
Any gift, whatever you can give, will nurture our parishes’ spiritual vitality and Christian 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 safe, easy, automatic monthly online donations.
Knowing we have the commitment of faithful supporters allows 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.
Every gift bears witness to God’s love for us and deepens our own sense of living gratitude for the grace that He has poured out into each of our hearts and lives.
May the Christ child bless you and your loved ones this Christmas and give you His strength and peace in the New Year ahead.
Support your parish to share Christ’s message of love and salvation with all
Thank you for your kind-hearted generosity, compassion and support for our Catholic ministries. With your prayers and generous giving our parishes can continue to be beacons of light and hope – and this time of darkness and uncertainty will pass. May our Lord’s light and love shine upon you and your family and keep you safe and well.
