St. Vincent De Paul  We all find ourselves in times of need throughout our lives. We are making an appeal to the wider community this Christmas for help for those who are struggling to survive on tiny inadequate amounts of money,  people who are unable to heat their houses or deciding what time of day to eat their only food. It is unthinkable how hard it would be in this situation to try to make a loved one smile on Christmas morning and to try and make it memorable for children. Please dig deep and make an extra effort early before Christmas so the volunteers can get help where it is needed in time. Remember 100% of every penny and every item collected will be given to the needy in this parish.  The Christmas collection will take place after Communion on Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th December. If you or your family are in that situation today why not contact St. Vincent de Paul Society on 087 2520382.
