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.

For those joining in Mass from home, by making an Act of Spiritual Communion we express our faith in Christ’s Real Presence in the Eucharist and ask him to unite himself with us. This prayer was written by St Alphonsus de Liguori:
My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart.
I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.
