Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver... You will be made rich in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God. 2 Corinthians 9:6-7
On behalf of the Parish Finance Committee, I would like to personally thank you for all of your never ending support in helping our parish community spiritually and financially, especially to all our volunteers for their tireless contributions in making our parish a beautiful community of faith.
On this note, I would like to say that we are committed to continue our pastoral services to all our parishioners in all capacity where we can share the Gospel.
As you all know, our parish collections have dropped exponentially because of the pandemic. That is why, I am humbly asking for your help financially, so that we can continue propagate the gift of faith to everyone. Your donation can make a big difference.
The new financial year has now begun and I would like to ask you to consider your Planned Giving contribution. This year we are implementing a new system for Planned Giving envelopes, please see details below:
- CATHOLIC DEVELOPMENT FUND
Support our Parish through CDFpay online.
- PLANNED GIVING 2021/22
Please take a box of envelopes from the foyer of the church. It is ESSENTIAL that you write your name and contact details on the Planned Giving Register (Blue Form) next to the box number you collect. It is not necessary to have the same box number as previous years.
- ONLINE BANK TRANSFER
Account Name: Albany Catholic Parish
A/C: 8469 85771
- DIRECT DEBIT
Please complete a Pink Pledge Form and a Direct Debit Request form will be emailed to you or may be collected from the parish office.
Please add a narration such as “NAME for Planned Giving” so we can identify the money when it comes into the account.
Should you wish to discuss this further, please do not hesitate to contact me any time. Thank you once again for your support and co-operation. God Bless.
