On Sundays and feast days the collectors ensure that the assembly is facilitated in making its monetary offering to the Lord.
“it is not the gift that I value most, what I value is the interest that is mounting up in your heavenly account. Phil 4:17
Role in our Lives
Collections for the poor and needy are ancient traditions in the life of the Christian Community. The collections help remind us of those who are less fortunate than ourselves.
In our Parish, the first collection at each mass is for the upkeep of the Priests. The second collection is generally the “Share” collection for the less well off parishes in the diocese. The second collection can be replaced occasionally with collections for diocesan charities.
