Dear People of the Diocese of Geraldton

During this extraordinary time of COVID19 (Corona Virus), government regulations regretfully, but necessarily, prevent Mass being celebrated publicly.

This is significantly impacting on the Clergy Remuneration Fund which relies on the Sunday first collection to pay the stipends (wages) of the clergy in our Diocese, as well as their health care costs, including health insurance.

On behalf of the Clergy of the Diocese of Geraldton may I encourage you to consider making a regular donation towards the stipend of the clergy who continue to celebrate Mass and care for your pastoral and spiritual welfare at this time.

If you wish to assist, please select your preferred method of payment below; either EFT from your own bank account or complete the Direct Debit form below and submit it online granting permission for the Catholic Development Fund (CDF) to Direct Debit your account for the amount you stipulate into the Clergy Fund. If you need any assistance with this please phone Mrs Genny Saturos on 99213221. Forms can only be completed using Internet Explorer.

Unless you stipulate otherwise, once Government regulations permit the public celebration of Sunday Masses we will contact you regarding the ceasing of this Direct Debit arrangement.

The Bishop and Clergy of the Diocese of Geraldton are very grateful for your consideration and generosity towards them at this time.

Yours sincerely in Jesus Christ

Bishop Michael Morrissey
Bishop of Geraldton

Vision Statement

We are:

* a welcoming community which reaches out to all
* celebrating Christ's presence
* joyfully living out our Christian calling across distance and diversity

This vision states that as a Diocese, we aim to be a welcoming, missionary, centred on Christ, and each striving to live one's particular vocation. It is in living out our calling that we praise God, follow Christ, influence society and achieve the goal of eternal life won for us by Christ. In the parishes we have encouraged people to measure whatever they do against this Diocesan vision.
