Other than where extra ordinary circumstances exist; all Parishes in the Diocese are expected to take up two collections at each weekend Mass and whilst there is no separate accounting process: The first collection goes to the support of the Parish Priest or Priests, to provide for stipends, presbytery utility costs, medical benefits, seminars, travel costs and other out of pocket expenses associated with their ministerial role/s. The second, which includes the planned giving envelopes, goes towards the myriad of costs; including building and grounds maintenance, insurance, church and office utility costs, parish employee wages, youth ministry, risk and compliance and all of the other incidentals which are required to maintain a large and diverse Parish. Both are essential and we are blessed in Busselton, by the generosity of our parishioners in both instances.
