Donations

Donations, Planned Giving*, First and Second Collections, Baptisms, Weddings and all other Sacramental Programme payments can now be made via Online – look for the DONATE NOW tab at the top of the page. It’s easier way of making an offering without the need to carry cash, however collections at mass (two buckets at 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

Covid-19 Update

Archbishop Anthony has lifted the dispensation from our Sunday Mass obligation. The Catholic faithful are once again obliged to attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation when this is reasonably possible. Those who are of great age, have health conditions or are otherwise anxious about the risks of COVID-19 are free to remain at home and find another way of keeping the Sabbath holy.

God bless & stay safe! – Fr Allan Casquejo
