GiveOUT Day Fundraiser

Join us for the 5th annual GiveOUT Day, dedicated to supporting the LGBTIQ+ community. During GiveOUT Day and in the lead up, we’ll be working hard to spread the word and collect donations to reach our goal of at least $2,500 so we can strengthen our outreach to LGBTQIA+ Catholics in regional and rural Victoria.
