We are a Parish working from a spirit of GRATITUDE,

Prayer for the use of our Parish Charity Fund

Holy Father, through our donations from the Parish Charity Fund, help us to be a faith community,

growing with Christ and his Church, building the Kingdom of God in the Salesian Charism. Amen.



In the Financial Year 2019-20 the following Donations have been made from the Parish Charity Fund:

Dunlea Centre

Parishioners are grateful for the Dunlea Centre presence in the Engadine Parish for 80 years! We deeply value the work undertaken for youth from  the foundation to this day! Our Parish has donated $5,000 to the Dunlea Centre.


The following Matching Gift Programs have been conducted within the Parish:

Drought Relief Appeal 

November 9 & 10, 2019: $28,168 donated.
NSW and parts of Queensland have experienced the worst drought on record. Many rivers and dams have run dry, paddocks are barren, livestock numbers have been reduced dramatically and are being hand-fed at great expense. Farm households are being impacted with every spare dollar being put into maintaining the viability of the farm. The Finance Committee selected the Country Womens' Association (CWA) to be the conduit for our Matching Gifts Program - learn why by clicking on this link. Drought Relief Donations total $14,084. Our total parish contribution is $28,168, after the Parish Charity Fund matching parishioner donations.


Throughout each year we have a number of Appeals for various charities within our Parish. We wish to thank parishioners for their generosity. The result of those Appeals in the current Financial Year are:

Catholic Mission
