Blessington Parish Appeal How to support your parish during the current restrictions
You will be aware of our need to maintain an in-flow of funds at the present to help us meet payments and expenses: insurance, heat & light, church expenses, maintenance, staff expenses, Priests salaries & the running of the COIMIN CENTRE.
“THANK YOU” to those who are supporting the parish through standing orders and the Neighbourhood Collection.
We now have a DONATE button on our website for those who would like to contribute to all 3 Churches in the parish or to the Archdiocese. It is a quick and secure way to contribute to the parish.
If you experience any difficulties, please phone the parish office who will assist you.
Once again may I take this opportunity to thank you all for your generosity.
