During Lent we will be supporting Trócaire. Each year our response is very generous. To date we have collected €120.  A major source of income for Trócaire is the money box that they make available in their Lenten package. The packages are available in the church, it is an interesting way of encouraging family members or friends to join in the support of Trócaire. My mother had a great saying “if you mind the pennies, the pounds will mind themselves”.

The Trócaire collection boxes are a great reminder of this saying. Take one and try it out!!


Another way of supporting Trócaire is the sale of  spiritual books. This has proved very successful for   different charities. If people have any spiritual books they would like to donate for the cause drop them in at the Sacristy or the Mass Office.  Don’t just put them on the table for sale.
