|Bishop’s Collection for Retired and Sick Clergy|
3 - 4 September 2016
The Clergy Support Foundation of the Diocese of Parramatta assists in meeting the needs of the retired and sick priests of the Diocese, and an annual appeal, The Bishop’s Collection for Retired and Sick Clergy, is held on Father’s Day each year to support the Foundation. It is hoped to raise $200,000 each year through this appeal.
Last year, through your generosity we almost reached the target with donations totalling $200,000 and the Foundation thanks you for this contribution. This year the appeal in the Diocese will be held on the weekend of September 3-4.
A third collection will be held on this weekend at each Mass. Special envelopes will be available and all donations over $2 are tax deductible. If you wish to claim a tax deduction, please tick the box and write your details clearly on the envelope. Appeal envelopes will be available next week for those who will not be here on the Father’s Day weekend.
