As Christian stewards, we are called to receive God’s gifts gratefully; cherish and cultivate them responsibly; share them generously in justice and love with others; and return them with increase.

Good deeds will live beyond your lifetime with a gift in Will to your parish and faith community. After providing for your family and loved ones, please consider sharing God’s blessings with future generations.

A gift in Will to your faith community, is a very special way to ensure that the ministry of the Church that has nurtured your faith and spiritual wellbeing throughout your life, endures. Even the most modest gift will have a significant impact in furthering the Church’s works of faith, hope and charity and ensure your Christian values live on.

The dream of installing a peal of bells at St Patrick's Cathedral dates to 1853.  In 2019, the arrival from England of eight specially commissioned bells, began the final chapter in an epic 167-year quest to install a 'ring' of bells in the spire of St Patrick's Cathedral.

On Tuesday 8 September at 6 pm, on the Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, history will be made with the Blessing of the Bells of St Patrick's Cathedral by Bishop Vincent Long OFM Conv, Bishop of Parramatta.

You are invited to view the livestream of this momentous occasion on the following platforms:

"And now these three remain: faith, hope and charity..."
