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.

Prayer for Christian Unity
.
Creator of light,
illumine our path by the light of Christ who moves before us and leads us.
May he be a beacon for our pilgrimage.
Enlighten us and dwell within us.
We thank you for the gift of that unfading Star, Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour.
Heal our divisions and draw us closer to the Light that we may find our unity in him. Amen.
           * * *
Even in the greatest darkness, God’s light is with us. Most perfectly, in the fullness of time, God sends Jesus Christ, who is the guiding light for all nations, the glory of God in the world, the source of divine light and life. The way ahead into unity with one another, into closer union with Christ, is not always clear. In our earnest attempts to build unity ourselves it is all too easy to lose sight of this fundamental message of the scriptures: that God does not abandon his people even in their failures and divisiveness. This is God’s message of hope for the whole world. God guides people of all kinds, by the light of the star, to where Christ, the light of the world, is to be found.
