Parish Envelopes

The new contribution boxes for the coming year will soon be distributed.  We use these envelopes to record income and to make a claim to the revenue commissioners on donations of €250 (€5 per week) or more from donors who pay tax.

If you don’t currently receive a contribution box, please let me know. 

The money you donate (yellow envelope) goes towards the upkeep of the parish. 

The 6 special collections taken up each year (purple envelope), pays the priest’s salary.  We are most grateful for your generous support.
