The 2022 Bishop’s Appeal, Growing Together, is supporting the growth of relationships and faith communities in the Diocese of Victoria. As part of this Appeal, Parishes can apply for grants from the Diocese to undertake projects that support community and relationship building.
Some wonderful events have taken place to date:
- $10,000 was provided to the Our Lady of the Rosary Parish to assist in the emergency repair and relocation of the parish office, meeting rooms and chapel.
- $3000 was given to St. Peter’s Parish to hold a Parish Reorganization Retreat. This featured a hosted lunch, and a speaker that helped parishioners discern their individual charisms, and discover how they may best serve their parish community.
- $2500 was provided to Sacred Heart Parish to host a meal for the Feast of The Most Sacred Heart of Jesus. They served hot dogs, chips, spring rolls, cupcakes, ice-cream, cakes, ice-tea, vegetarian and gluten-free options, and even had a cash bar! It was a joyful celebration with over 160 attendees.
