First Collection - Continue to Contribute
The 'First Collection' is for the parish priest. The contributions made are deposited into the Central Presbytery Fund from which the clergy are paid their annual stipend. With the closure of churches parishioners have little opportunity to contribute to the stipend of their parish priest.
If you would like to continue contributing to the 'First Collection' then you can deposit directly into the Central Presbytery Fund account, Catholic Archdiocese of Canberra & Goulburn.

Plenary Council Update: ‘Snapshot Reports” have now been released so that we can see a sample of the voices and answers that inspired each of the six National Themes of Discernment. The snapshots can be viewed on the Plenary Council website. As you read the snapshots, you might find it helpful to keep in mind any suggestions that could be included in the parish goals for our upcoming Parish Pastoral Plan 2020-2022.
The home of our faith is the Church, the place we come and pray, where we celebrate Mass, Baptisms, Weddings and Funerals, where we celebrate Jesus’ birthday and his resurrection. It is also the front door to our faith community that leads and invites people to come and explore, or where they can come and join in whatever gives them life.
The church is a constantly growing structure of believers who are united in the mission of spreading the good news of Jesus Christ. To do this effectively we reach out to those in our community who are able to support us financially.
COMMUNITY & MINISTRY GROUPS
Our faith is central to the way in which we live everyday, St Gregory's has many groups that meet regularly to enhance the experience of life through friendship and prayer

LOVE AND TRUTH OF CHRIST
