2018 Planned Giving Envelope Collection: The new boxes of envelopes will continue to be distributed at all masses this weekend in the main porch of the Church. Please give your name to the distributors who will then locate your particular box with your number. Thank you to all families who contribute to this collection.

May we also invite new families who do not currently contribute to consider beginning their donation to the Parish this coming year. This can be done either by the envelope collection or standing order. We would be delighted to receive your details as you leave the Church this weekend or through the Parish Office – contact details above.

The Planned Giving finances the upkeep of the Church and Parish properties and all the proceeds remain within the Parish.

Thank you for the Envelope Collection for Sunday 19th November which amounted to €910.

We sympathise with the families of Harry Kane, Mary Murphy and Adrian Carrick who passed away recently. May they rest in peace.
