This year’s Christmas Appeal will be officially launched at St. Mary`s and St. Thomas’ Parishes on the weekend of 3rd/4th December.
With the current cost-of-living crisis, the assistance we provide for people in Greensborough and Watsonia experiencing hardship this Christmas will be needed more than ever. If possible we ask Parishioners to please consider donating whatever is affordable to help continue our local Conference`s work of helping those who really struggle to pay for the basics of normal living. In the next few months, we also know there will be requests for assistance from families as they prepare for school in 2023.
- Appeal envelopes will be provided at the end of the pews and in the Gathering Spaces of both Churches - they can then be placed in the 2nd Collection or in the `after Mass` Collection bag.
- Credit card donations can be arranged by calling 13 18 12 and stating you are donating to the Greensborough Conference Christmas Appeal
- Donations can be made online via vinnies.org.au – please make sure you include Greensborough in the ‘Comments/Conference Name’ section
With our continued gratitude for your ongoing support and incredible generosity!
