Second Collections

Allocations : The collection we call “allocations” is an outreach collection for local charities. It may also be referred to as GSO/Guilford Charities.

Mission Trips : This collection is taken up in early summer to enable the youth of our parish to go to Catholic Heart Work Camp.

Priests’ Retirement : This collection is unique in that the Diocese makes an assessment each year for this purpose. The Diocese specifically requests that we take up a collection in September and remit the funds from that collection. The balance due is then paid in January of the following year. Because we do not get enough money in the September collection to fund the entire assessment, which is usually a little over 40,000, we take up collections in December, March and June to supplement the September remittance. Our fiscal year ends June 30, after which a new assessment is made the following September.

You will find an envelope for each of these special collections in your envelope package. Thank you so very much for your continued generosity and caring.
