(Christmas Dues) are now being delivered to households along with our Christmas Newsletter. These offerings pay the salaries of the Parish Clergy who thank parishioners for their support. Envelopes are also available in the churches & the Parish Centre for households who do not receive an envelope delivered to their homes. You will have the opportunity on Christmas Day to offer your support. This will take place after Communion through a second collection.

A sincere Thank you to everybody who participated and who support St. John’s Parish in this particular way. We received a payment for €33,824.72.from the Revenue. If you would like information on the scheme, please contact Catherine Dwyer at the Parish Centre

From this weekend the collectors in St. John’s will wear a badge so as to identify them as St. John’s collectors. We thank them for their ministry and we thank you for your contribution so that the parish can be of service to the community.
