Shepherd's Corner


The Archdiocese is promoting Alpha as a very graced way to evangelise, that is, give the many people that surround us in our daily lives the experience of the New Life we are reading about in the readings in this Easter Season- especially in the Acts of the Apostles.  You might feel like a bit of that experience too! I am keen to try it in the parish as it has been a most effective spiritual tool in that regard.  I am inviting a team to trial the course first- on Thursday nights in May and June in the Dickson Parish Centre- it runs for about 8 weeks with a Saturday afternoon reflection day component.

If anyone would like to be involved please see me for a chat!

First & Second Collections

First Collection - Continue to Contribute

The 'First Collection' is for the parish priest.  The contributions made are deposited into the Central Presbytery Fund from which the clergy are paid their annual stipend of $19,000 per annum.  With social distancing restrictions, parishioners unable to attend services have little opportunity to contribute to the stipend of their parish priest. 

If you would like to continue contributing to the 'First Collection' then you can deposit directly into the Central Presbytery Fund account, Catholic Archdiocese of Canberra & Goulburn.

  • BSB: 062 786
  • No:   000029248
  • Central Presbytery Fund   

Note: Please record your surname and parish name (Central Canberra) in the reference field when you make a transfer to the Central Presbytery Fund account: e.g. 'BLOGGS CANBERRA CENTRAL'.
