It’s only thanks to generous gifts made by parishioner that we’ve been here for over 100 years serving the faithful.
We have always been grateful for the gifts made by parishioners to the church. But an increasing number of our generous supporters have asked about the best ways to donate.
You may have come across the brochure, A Gift to Our Church. Starting with a message from Archbishop George, the booklet includes details of where the Archdiocese has existing commitments but also, in the case of training new priests, a vision for the future.
Archbishop George explains, “To make a gift, especially a bequest, is a very personal and private act of generosity and we want to ensure that we meet the wishes of the donor.
My message to any parishioner who is thinking of making a gift, of any type, is please speak to your Parish Priest or if you would prefer directly to me. We can establish your wishes and take all necessary steps to ensure that these wishes are met.”
The difference you can make
Gifts to the Archdiocese have made an enormous contribution to churches across all of the Deanery Areas. The Gift to Our Church brochure highlights just some of the good work already underway, including our commitment to Seminarians and Retired Clergy.
At 7.00pm on Tuesday 18th June, at St Brigid’s Church Hall you will have the opportunity to attend an informal meeting explaining how to make a personal gift. This event will be an opportunity to meet staff from Archbishop’s House to discuss how to make a personal bequest, or leave gift in memory of a loved one.
For those who are interested, the Archdiocese will be making available expertise in this area including solicitors who can assist with the drafting of a will.
