THE MEMORARE – PRAYER

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided.

Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me.

Amen.

Support Us

First and Second Collections, Planned Giving*, Baptisms, Weddings and all other Sacramental Programme payments can now be made via Onlineclick on the red “SUPPORT US” button towards the top right hand corner and follow the instructions on the BPoint Secure Facility. It’s easier way of making an offering without the need to carry cash, however collections at mass (two boxes near the entrance or tap and go) will continue as usual. Thank you for your donations and support.

The First Collection such as your gifts at baptism and marriages, goes towards paying the living expenses of the priests of our parish and the diocese. Any surplus goes to an Archdiocesan fund to support other priests (eg in smaller parishes, elderly, studying).

The Second Collection is for the support of the parish’s maintenance, utilities, insurances, liturgical needs (eg. altar flowers, altar bread and wine), parish administration (eg staff wages), etc. (including CWF* shortfall).

* Another way to support this Parish and get 100% tax deductibility on your donation ($2 or more) is by donating to Charitable Works Fund (CWF) online AND identify HOLY FAMILY MAROUBRA at the bottom of the page, so that your donation will be added to Parish Appeal total.

* If you wish to join our Planned Giving Program via envelope or monthly direct debit, please send us an email to holy.family@bigpond.com
