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

Saint John Henry Newman
.
On Sunday 13th October, Pope Francis canonised Cardinal John Henry Newman as a Saint. He was born on 21st February 1801, the first of six children. He was ordained an Anglican priest but converted to Catholicism. He was received into the Church by an Italian Passionist Fr Dominic Barberi on 9th October 1845. In addition to the schools associated with him in England, he founded a boarding school for boys in Dublin at the side of the Oratory Church [St. Stephen’s Green], and also University College Dublin. He wrote extensively in his latter years and among his writings are the prayer below and the hymn ‘Lead, Kindly Light’. He died on 11th August 1890.
Lord, may you support us all the day long ’till the shades lengthen,
and evening falls, the busy world is hushed, the fever of life is over and our work is done. Then in your mercy, Lord, may you grant us
a safe lodging, a holy rest and peace at last. Amen.
Saint John Henry Newman, pray for us.
