Pentecost is linked closely with Easter and with Trócaire’s mission. ‘You shall receive power … and you will be my witnesses’ (Acts 1:8). As the disciples received their mission to go out and share the Good News, we in Trócaire are missioned by the Irish Church to go out to the world to care for the most vulnerable.

 As you know, donations made through the annual Trócaire Lenten Campaign, especially the Trócaire box, fund lifesaving programmes around the world. Due to the necessary restrictions related to COVID-19, thousands of Trócaire boxes are sitting in homes across Ireland. This is the worst possible time coming just as the world’s poorest people need us most. Millions of people who live without access to adequate water supplies, sanitation and healthcare are now faced with the threat of COVID-19. We have done – and continue to do – so much to protect each other. Now it is time to protect the worlds’ most vulnerable.

 The contents of each and every Trócaire box, no matter how small, come together to make a significant difference. This virus knows no borders, but neither does our compassion.

 This year, people can return their Lenten donation in several ways:

 Online at www.trocaire.org

  1. By post to any of our offices:

    • Trócaire, Maynooth, Co. Kildare

    • 50 King St, Belfast BT1 6AD

  2. By phone 1850 408 408 (ROI) or 0800 912 1200 (NI)

 With the support of the Bishops and the Irish Episcopal Conference, we are asking parishes to make people aware of the urgent need for their Lenten donations. Donations will be accepted at any time, but we are asking that parishes communicate this message during masses and through parish communication channels before, on and after Pentecost weekend. Trócaire will also communicate a ‘please return your Lenten donations’ message to the public through mass media (radio, press & online) and through Catholic communications outlets before and on Pentecost weekend.
