FINANCIAL SNAPSHOT OF PARISH & PLANNED-GIVING APPEAL
The community we have here at St Canice is very generous. We are a very active parish and have a long history of hands-on compassion. Every time we have been challenged to respond to a new set of circumstances we have responded without flinching.
As the recent months of ‘parish renewal’ activity taking place there has also been a renewed focus on the financial affairs of the parish, principally to assess how able we might be to take on more activity and to become more disciplined about budgets, expenditure, future costs, etc.
Our planned and weekly contributions are declining while operating costs are trending upwards.
There has not been a request for parishioners to increase their planned-giving for several years, so we ask that you consider increasing your regular contribution, ideally through our planned giving program. Forms are available to facilitate direct credit payments.
Thank you for your generosity.
