    Annual Catholic Campaign https://catholicfoundation.org.au/how-we-help/annual-catholic-campaign/

    The Annual Catholic Campaign is a new initiative which streamlines the Archdiocese of Brisbane appeals into one in-parish campaign. This fundraising process has become more efficient for parishes and schools, which in turn has fostered stronger support for the major areas of need in the Archdiocese.

    4 major areas of need for the Church today

    The Archbishop invites your support for the current major areas of need in the local Church:
    Priests Foundation caring for retirement and health of priests
    Centacare supporting Catholic social services
    Holy Spirit Seminary educating seminarians for our future parishes
    MacKillop Fund providing education bursaries to children in critical circumstances

    If you prefer to contribute a non tax-deductible donation your gift will go toward the Annual Grants Program contributing to grants for grass-roots ministry throughout the Archdiocese. For processing purposes your gifts must be made to this fund separately.
