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.

Our task is to seek and find Christ in our world as it is, and not as it might be. The fact that the world is other than it might be does not alter the truth that Christ is present in it and that his plan has been neither frustrated nor changed: indeed, all will be done according to his will.
Our Advent is a celebration of this hope. What is uncertain is not the “coming” of Christ but our own reception of him, our own response to him, our readiness and capacity to “go forth to meet him”. We must be willing to see him and acclaim him, even at the very moment when our whole life’s work and all its meaning seem to collapse.
(Thomas Merton)
