The collection on Christmas Day and Easter Sunday are the two main sources of income for the priests. Clergy income is derived from the Christmas and Easter Offerings as well as Mass Stipends and offerings from baptisms, wedding and funerals. This is paid into the parish and then distributed to the clergy. These offerings can also be gift aided.
We do so, aware of the constant need of the youth to be trained and formed in their faith as active member of our parish community.
