That’s a statement from Catholic Community Fund Manager Jenny Chung who is proud to be supporting our parishes in 2023 through a special initiative.
To celebrate the organisation’s recent name change from Catholic Development Fund to Catholic Community Fund (CCF), the CCF Team is offering every parish in our Diocese a one-off donation of $250.
This money can go towards the costs associated with any planned community engagement activities this year.
“There are no strings attached to this offer, but we would love to hear how parishes are using the funds and if they have any photos to share that would be great,” Jenny said.
“Our parish communities have always supported the Fund and we want to support them and say thanks.”
Jenny adds it has been wonderful to see what parishes get up to with the funds.
So far, nine parishes have collected their donation for things like morning tea, BBQs and reflection days.
“It’s been great to see some real diversity in how parishes are utilising the funds donated to engage with their communities from BBQ dinners after Family Mass and community lunches to morning teas with other faith groups,” Jenny said.
If your parish is yet to collect its funds, contact CCF Office Manager Anne Campbell by emailing Anne.Campbell@mn.catholic.org.au or calling 4979 1163.
