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.

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. The official reopening of the Church will be on Sunday 3rd of March. Click here for more information.
