Planned Giving Programme
The Parish relies heavily on regular contributions from members of the OLSH community to pay for the monthly expenses and upkeep associated with the Church and Presbytery. By committing to giving an amount regularly each week, by using the planned giving envelopes, parishioners can provide invaluable support to OLSH.
