Christmas is not the same for Everyone

Even in an improving economy, it can still take just one small problem to tip someone into crisis and poverty. But we know that a little help at the right time can change everything. This Christmas, over 140,000 people in communities across the country will ask St. Vincent de Paul for help with food, fuel and basic clothing. Some of these are in our community.
Please support the SVP Annual Appeal this weekend at the Church Door collections in Millstreet, Ballydaly, Cullen, Derrinagree, Dromagh, and Kilcorney at all Masses. Your help can last a lifetime. [SVP]
