The Trόcaire Collection is always associated with Lent. The season of Lent concentrates on three things, prayer, fasting and almsgiving. To assist us all with the prayer, Mass will be celebrated every Monday evening at 8pm. Make sure you have a Trόcaire Box in your home. It will remind you of almsgiving, making a contribution to the poor and starving of the world. Your contribution last year was very generous. You can see all the details on the notice board.
