Finance

Our Finance Committee is as follows:

Kevin Ahern (Chairperson), Declan Murray, Joan King, Siobhan Speers and Denis Smith.

Church Collections

The First Collection at Mass is to support the working, sick and retired priests of the diocese. Christmas and Easter Dues also go towards supporting the priests.

The Second (SHARE) Collection is for the Diocesan Development Fund.

The Family Offering is the main source of income for the Parish. You can contribute by using the weekly envelopes or by setting up a standing order.

Donations

Your contributions through the weekly collections and standing orders are vital. For those who are not paying through standing orders and would like to consider contributing on this basis, please download a standing order form. Contributions by standing order or envelopes may also qualify for a tax refund to the parish at no additional cost to the contributor.

A Standing Order form can be downloaded here.

All contributions are gratefully accepted.

Annual Accounts

The most recent Parish annual accounts can be downloaded and viewed by clicking here. In 2016, the diocesan financial system became more centralised, necessitated by the Charities Legislation.

Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow
.
Yesterday’s dead,
Tomorrow’s unborn,
So there’s nothing to fear
And nothing to mourn.
For all that is past
And all that has been
Can never return
To be lived once again.
And what lies ahead
Or the things that will be
Are still in God’s hands
So it is not up to me
To live in the future
That is God’s great unknown,
For the past and the present
God claims for His own.
So all I need do
Is to live for Today
And trust God to show me
The truth and the way.
For it’s only the memory
Of things that have been
And expecting tomorrow
To bring trouble again
That fills my today,
Which God wants to bless,
With uncertain fears
And borrowed distress.
For all I need live for
Is this one little minute,
For life’s here and now
And eternity’s in it.
.
