Catholic Leader Spotlight Parish Giving App

The Catholic Leader, in their most recent publication discusses the successful launch of our new Parish Giving App and the positive impact it is having.

Emilie Ng, journalist for The Catholic Leader writes ‘On Brisbane’s northside, parish priest of Little Flower Church, Kedron, Fr Mario Debattista said the app was “another opportunity for people to give if they want to give”.

“It just gives another opportunity for people to offer something to the parish, which we appreciate especially at this time,” Fr Debattista said.                                                                                            

Fr Debattista acknowledged that older parishioners might “prefer the old-fashioned way” of giving to the parish but said “it is definitely a help”.’ The article can be found in full in the May 17, 2020 edition of The Catholic Leader
