Fundraising Appeal

Please see our latest Ezechiel House Newsletter, which is our special 2018 fundraising edition.

Latest Fundraising Appeal Newsletter

For the past ten years, we have organised biennial fundraising dinners, in order to raise awareness of the financial burden involved in forming future priests. This year it will not be possible for us to hold another dinner, so the newsletter itself must serve as our 2018 fundraising appeal.

In particular, we are asking you to commit to becoming a monthly donor. Giving small monthly automatic donations is generally more convenient for our benefactors and will also assure us of long-term stability in being able to cover our regular formation expenses.

All of our benefactors, living and deceased, are prayed for daily, and Mass is offered for their needs and intentions every First Friday.


Make a Donation

The Priestly Fraternity of St Peter needs your donations in support of our various works in the Southern Cross Region: Australia and New Zealand.

Maternal Heart of Mary Church is currently undergoing a major restoration to bring it back to its original splendour. The Parish is completely dependent on the generosity of benefactors to pay these and all other expenses.

The Fraternity of St Peter is also very much in need of your financial support to help us cover the large financial burden of forming our future priests, as well as the day-to-day costs of the vital work of priestly ministry. Please see our Latest Fundraising Appeal Newsletter.

Our priests and seminarians pray daily for all our benefactors (both living and deceased) & the Holy Mass on the first Friday of the month is always offered for this intention.

Please give generously today.

Due to renovations to the church, the location and times of some Masses will be affected. Click here for more information.
