CHRISTMAS MASS COLLECTIONS
Again 2009 has been very significant and busy for our Parish Restoration Committee. The current projects of Phase 1 (the outside structural work), and the work on the inside, Phase 2 (heating, electrical, plastering, etc) are now near completion. Next weekend (26th/27th) we invite you to view the new Pastoral Centre and the sacristy following each Mass. Further details later.
This year we will have our annual Church Door Collection at all Christmas Masses. This special collection at the entrance to the church will help alleviate the capital expenses of the Parish. The Offertory collection taken up in the baskets inside is what runs the day-to-day expenses of the Parish. We are very grateful for your on-going support and help throughout the past year. We ask God to reward you.
Wishing you all a Holy and Happy Christmas
