Direct Giving Letter 1/2020

January 15, 2020


Dear Parishioner,


Thank you for your participation in the Parish Direct Giving Program.  It is through the generosity of parishioners that we are able to strive to fulfil our Parish Vision.


We have prepared a prayer card for you, a copy of which is on this link

The actual prayer cards are available at the entrance to each church.  The prayer incorporates our Parish Vision of being “A faith community, growing with Christ and his Church, building the Kingdom of God in the Salesian Charism”.  


You may have noticed that I say a prayer over the Direct Giving gifts brought forward at the Offertory.  I would like to suggest some ways in which you may like to use the prayer card:


  1. If you contribute monthly using the Direct Debit system, you may care to say the prayer prior to placing the card in the second collection bag each week.  We will recycle the cards by returning them to the box at the church entry each week.

  2. If you currently use the envelopes, you may wish to consider changing over to the Direct Debit system and place the Prayer Card in the second collection bag instead of the envelope.  We will ensure that there is always a supply of the prayer cards. If you would like to make the change, simply email Tara Anderson at boscosecretary@gmail.com with your account or credit card details and the monthly amount you wish to contribute, and she will look after it for you.

  3. If you prefer to continue to use the envelopes, you may care to say the prayer prior to placing your envelope in the second collection bag each week.

  4. You may prefer to say the prayer before leaving home for Mass, or at some other time, like in the church before or after Mass.


It is through the continued support that you provide through the second collection that we are able to be a faith community, growing with Christ and his Church, building the Kingdom of God in the Salesian Charism.


Thank you,



court

Fr Mick Court SDB
