Thank you to all who contribute to all collections.
SINCERE THANKS to those who contribute to the Parish Clergy Fund which pays the priests salary, and the Parish Church Fund which is used for the upkeep of parish property, diocesan expenses, the insurance and energy costs, as well as the support of retired priests. These regular payments maintain the service in the parish. We are very grateful to those who give to the monthly envelope collection and the offertory collection which are used to fund the parish, as well as those who give to the six income collections for the priest. Recently a number of families and individuals made their annual contribution - these are most gratefully received. Please remember if your combined contribution to the church and priest amounts to a minimum of €250 in one year it enables the parish to claim the tax paid at the agreed rate of 31% for both Self-employed and PAYE Taxpayers. Parishioners who bring their contributions this amount would greatly benefit our parish funds.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a piece of European Union legislation that aims at ensuring the protection of individuals in relation to the processing of personal data. It legalises the right of every person to control their own personal information and to have it adequately protected by anyone processing and holding it. The GDPR took effect on May 25th 2018. In order to comply with this legislation, parishes will have to be more careful when requested for information by people creating a family tree or to whom a Certificate of Baptism, Confirmation and Marriage are issued. This would either have to be the person needing the Certificate or for persons under 18 years of age, that request could be made by a parent or legal guardian. In instances where people are not known personally by the Data Holder, identification may be needed from the person wishing to obtain it. Your understanding and co-operation in these matters would be greatly appreciated.
