Let Dad give the gift this Father's Day

 Give a Life-Giving Gift this Fathers Day copy

When Father’s Day comes around each year, for many it is a special chance to celebrate the man who has given us so much. But what can we give him in return?    

That same question has troubled generations of sons and daughters, but this year, Catholic Mission is offering a stress-free way to give a thoughtful present and improve the life of someone in need.

Catholic Mission’s Life-Giving Gifts catalogue includes a range of affordable gifts that address a broad spectrum of need and have a positive and lasting impact on individuals, families and entire communities around the world.

Catholic Mission National Director Father Brian Lucas says a Life-Giving Gift allows Dad to give the gift. ‘A Life-Giving Gift is a terrific way to honour our fathers by making a positive difference to the life of someone in need,’ Father Lucas says.

‘There are gifts suited to every budget, including tax-deductible options, which support children, communities, and future church leaders around the world.’

Among the most popular choices again this year are a laying hen for a family at $9, a nourishing daily meal for 25 children in need at $28, and a second-hand computer for a seminary at $160.

A Life-Giving Gift will not leave Dad empty-handed this Father’s Day; each gift comes with a beautifully designed card that can be personalised with a special message for your father or father-figure.

Better yet, if Dad’s tech-savvy, you can do your bit for the environment and instantly purchase a gift with an e-card online at catholicmission.org.au/gifts.

‘A Life-Giving Gift means you can alternate from the traditional socks and gift card for Dad this year,’ says Father Lucas. ‘It can also complement those gift ideas as something a little different.’
