Donations Explained

A number of parishioners have sought clarification on the Collections in the Church and Donations to the Parish.


This is for the general maintenance and upkeep of the Church - heat, light, repairs, grounds, salaries etc.

You can donate to this fund by setting up a monthly, quarterly or annual Standing Order with your bank or by leaving a donation into the Parish Office.  Please contact the Parish Office to obtain a Standing Order Form.

We strongly appeal for more Parishioners to support this fund and/or consider increasing their existing contribution.


First Collection - all monies from the first collection and from Dues are lodged to the Common Fund Diocesan Account.  This money is used for the remuneration of all  priests in the Dublin Diocese including retired Priests.

Second Collection - Money from the second collection is lodged to the Diocesan Share Account.  This money is used to support (1) administrative and financial advice and guidance to parishes; (2) financial support to disadvantaged parishes; (3) vital work for Safeguarding & Protection service; (4) Education Secretariat; (5) Parish Pastoral Workers, Faith Development Workers and (6) programmes like Pathways.
