Financial Support of our Parish. As in any household, bills need to be paid and a little put away for a rainy day. A parish is no different in that sense. There is a generous commitment by many people in supporting the parish each week. This generosity is deeply appreciated. That said, it would be desirable if this need was met by a greater number of parishioners. It would ensure that expenses for lighting, heating, insurance etc. would be met by all who benefit from church services – ranging from baptisms to weddings to funerals, as well as daily and weekly Mass. If you would like to be included in the list of parishioners who contribute on a regular basis, please contact The Parish Office. A parish envelope system is in place and a box of envelopes will be forwarded to you. There is also the opportunity to contribute by setting up a standing order if this would be easier for you.  As you may see from the Parish Financial Statement, the parish benefits greatly from a tax rebate. If a parishioner contributes €250 or more per annum to the parish, it is possible for the parish to claim a tax rebate. In the past, each parishioner was issued with an individual note informing them of their annual contribution. To continue with this practise using the computer programme that is in place would be very time consuming. However, if any parishioner would like to know what their annual contribution to the parish is, please contact the Parish Secretary and this will be forwarded to you. It is preferable that this request would be made by email or by sending a note to the Parish Office. Míle Buíochas
