Time, Talent and Treasure are gifts given to each of us for which we are ultimately accountable. We give of our time in prayer with God, our talent by participating in ministries, service and charities, and our treasure by sharing our finances. This is our fundamental and personal stewardship. Over and above this we give alms to the poor, a powerful witness to the Christian faith.
Sunday Collections – Parish Planned Giving
While many use paper envelopes to support the parish on a weekly basis through the parish Thanksgiving Offertory or Planned Giving Programme, some have opted to switch to regular automated Credit Card or Direct Debit contributions. This helps the parish in planning and ensures regular contributions so we do not fall short during holiday periods, and when parishioners are travelling.
