Finance Committee

The Finance Committee is made up of a group of parishioners with expertise in several fields including finance, who assist the Parish Priest with the administration and allocation of Parish funds according to the prepared annual budget.

The Parish finances come mainly through collections at Sunday Mass.  The first collection assists the Bishop and Priests of the diocese.

The Planned Giving envelopes and donations by credit card which are part of the second collection assist in the debt reduction of Catholic Schools and our Church.  The loose money goes to the running cost of the parish or to special needs as they arise.

Chairman: Ray Cooper

The Planned Giving Program is vital to keep our Parish running.
Contact the Parish Office if you would like to participate in the Planned Giving Program.

Parish Bus Drivers

Parish Bus Drivers are volunteers and are rostered on a monthly basis.  The Parish Bus is utilised during the weekend to pick up parishioners from their homes and to take them to church and back home again.  The bus is also available for other parish community outings.

If you have a current Bus Drivers License and would be interested in offering your driving service OR you require OLSS Bus Driving Service, please Contact the Parish Office.
