PLANNED GIVING RENEWAL PROGRAM

This weekend in our parish we launch a four week ‘planned giving renewal program’. During this time we hope that each parishioner might take some time to reconsider their financial  contribution to our parish. We are known as a parish who have good levels of participation and community, however we are also currently living beyond our means. This weekend the priests will include in their preaching some spiritual  encouragement to be generous with what God has blessed us with. Over the next few weeks there will be an opportunity for you, in a concrete way, to understand our current financial position and to respond to this. Thanks in advance for your prayerful consideration of these issues.

All over the world Catholics are hearing God’s call to a deeper conversion of faith and are seeking a closer personal relationship with Christ. Parishes are seeking to open the doors of our Church to the community.

The parish of St Peter Chanel, Waimakariri has been blessed with great growth through our Alpha programme, Sacramental formation and other opportunities to gather together and strengthen our relationships with Christ and each other. Now we want to move from maintenance to continued growth and development. With your help our parish can thrive and have an impact on our wider community. 

You can find details below on how you can help financially.

“Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work”

2 CORINTHIANS 9:6-8
