THANK YOU! We are touched and humbled by the generosity of the many faithful parish members who support the work of the church through the kindness of donations. Your gifts make a difference.

Bishop's Diocesan Ministry Campaign

Bishop Colli is very grateful to all those who have already donated to this annual campaign and he encourages those who have not given as yet, to seriously consider donating to this important pastoral need. The campaign reaches out to many of our struggling parishes and responds to the needs of many families, refugees, and the poor in our area. Your sharing in this campaign helps our diocese to continue the work of Jesus by reaching out and sharing generously with others. Please give through your parish church, or directly to the Pastoral Centre or on-line using the button above.

Thank you once again.
