Annual Catholic Campaign

Our Church, our community, doing good.

The Archdiocese of Brisbane is a vibrant and dynamic Church – nowhere is this more visible than in the cooperative effort of the Annual Catholic Campaign. The Campaign supports vital ministries around South East Queensland and relies on the generosity of our parishioners. Please consider giving a gift to help build the good works of the Church today.

4 major areas of need for the Church today

The Archbishop invites your support for the current major areas of need in the local Church:

  1. Priests Foundation caring for elderly and unwell priests in their retirement,
  2. Centacare supporting Catholic social services,
  3. Holy Spirit Seminary educating seminarians for our future parishes, and
  4. Mary MacKillop Catholic School Access Fund providing education bursaries to children whose dream of a Catholic education is beyond their family’s reach.

If you prefer to contribute a non tax-deductible donation your gift will go toward the Annual Grants Program contributing to grants for grassroots ministry throughout the Archdiocese. For processing purposes, your gifts must be made to this fund separately.

Working together for the local Church

Working together, our team of priests, parish ambassadors and parish communities, principals, teachers, and school communities promote and support the Church’s core mission.

About the Campaign – a single in-parish appeal

The Annual Catholic Campaign streamlines the Archdiocese of Brisbane appeals into one in-parish campaign. This fundraising process has become more efficient for parishes and schools, which in turn has fostered stronger support for the major areas of need in the Archdiocese.

How much was raised in last year’s Campaign?

Thanks to your generosity, gifts to the 2017 Campaign totalled $1.4 million. All tax deductible donations to the Campaign are equally divided between the above four areas of need.

Your monthly donations make all the difference

Because of your generous support, around a quarter of funds raised in 2017 came from monthly donations. We hope that you will prayerfully consider giving a monthly gift in an amount that means something to you.

Most of all, the success of the Annual Catholic Campaign relies on our ability to effectively implement one consolidated fundraising effort and exceed what would have been raised in the previous multiple in-parish appeals.
