RESTORATION UPDATE:  €1,427.845.00 Raised to date

The Parish Restoration Committee and the Priests of the Parish wish to congratulate and sincerely thank everyone of you for your continued support of our Restoration Project.  The amount raised to date is a wonderful achievement in these recessionary times.

Fundraising is ongoing and we are grateful to the various individuals and groups that have undertaken these projects.

We are happy to report that there has been a very positive uptake on our “Buy a brick” project and there are still brochures available at the back of the Church.  All those you have purchased bricks will be remembered in a special Mass in the Autumn. Likewise our Golden Book Masses will be offered in November for the deceased enrolments and on March 17th Mass was offered for the living.

May God bless all you who have supported us.
