“Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also,” (Matthew 6:21)

How will we use your gifts?

Our listed church and the presbytery are over 100 years old with a more recent hall.

Between 2016 and 2022 we have had to spend over £160,000 on the site, using our savings
and fundraising efforts.

The presbytery has damp and heating problems.

The church roof needs more repairs.

The hall kitchen and window sealed units are due for renewal.

The listed iron gates are badly corroded.

The church needs redecoration……….

The list goes on, the costs mount up, our income has reduced.


Your gifts will help the Catholic community in Swanage to pay for work like this and to save for larger items.
