Support OLV

A lot happens during 12 months at our parish. But it can’t happen without you.

Whether you’re a regular parishioner or an occasional visitor, you can help ensure this parish and its facilities are protected for the future. Prayer, financial support and volunteering your time and talents – everyone can help.

Planned Giving

Regular planned giving ensures the parish can pay its daily operational bills. The Second Collection supports a priest, keeps the power on, water running, insurance paid, liturgical items in stock – everything Father needs to keep the doors open. It is also critical for us to demonstrate we can access parish loans when necessary.

Your weekly or monthly support, regular and committed, is deeply appreciated.

We run an annual Parish Appeal to keep our planned giving records up to date, but you can join at any time.

Contact us for details about setting up a direct debit payment or use the Parish Giving App to set up automatic payments.

Endowment Fund

The Parish established an Endowment Fund in 2019. The money is invested and receives an annual return which can be reinvested or used for Parish expenses.

This is a valuable way to help future generations. Your contributions to the Fund will keep on earning, year after year.

Donate online at any time on the Catholic Foundation website. Be sure to select Bowen Hills – Our Lady of Victories parish on the menu.
