The amount raised over two masses last weekend was £2,032.59

Thank you all so much for contributing to the

emergency collection.

A message from Trócaire

If you usually attend Mass, I wanted to let you know that the Irish Bishops’ Conference have agreed for an Emergency Church Collection to take place in Parishes across Ireland on 6th and 7th November.

To help lift the terrible human suffering and prevent loss of life now unfolding in the hunger crisis raging across East Africa, Trócaire have pledged to support the Emergency Church Collection however we can. Over 30 million children, women, and men are being pushed into starvation due to climate change, conflict, and Covid.

Please, if you’re able, participate in your Parish’s Emergency Church Collection on 6th or 7th November.

The support and compassion you show will be there beside Trócaire in the months to come by helping rush emergency food and aid into devastated communities to keep people alive… provide schools and families with safe, clean water… and fund drought-tolerant seeds plus hay and medicine so farmers can save their livestock and have hope of a harvest.

We are now on the ground in the worst-hit regions: the countries of South Sudan, Somalia, and Ethiopia, and the state of South Kordofan in Sudan.

Without emergency food and aid, people won’t survive. Lives depend on our ability to reach them.

If you’re unable to attend, you can still make a difference and save lives. Simply give what you can here, in support of the Emergency Church Collection for East Africa.

Or donate over the phone by calling 1850 408 408 (ROI) or 0800 912 1200 (NI & UK).

Over 30 million lives now hang in the balance.

And thank you, today and always, for your compassion.
Until love conquers fear,

Caoimhe de Barra
CEO, Trócaire

P.S. A special word of gratitude to Parishes of every size for their ongoing support of the work of Trócaire – and to every Trócaire supporter – particularly during this challenging period where the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting every aspect of life both in Ireland and in poorer countries. The work we do would be impossible without you.
