Can you help?    Our giving during the Covid-19 pandemic

We understand the financial uncertainty and hardship facing so many in our community during these unprecedented times. As parish communities it will be vital that we look for new ways of helping each other in the aftermath of Covid-19. We have been unable to have our usual parish collections which support our parishes, diocese and Caritas with the work of mission. Likewise, our gifts for the St Vincent de Paul foodbank are no longer possible. We invite you to consider giving online, either with a one-off donation or through automatic payments. Alternatively, please keep hold of your envelops until we return.

Giving to your Parish:    Please contact your local parish office for bank account details to start a direct deposit.
