Trócaire's Lenten Appeal
Some of the Mass servers helped Fr Robert find the Trócaire box in St Paul’s Church this morning. These young people took some time to describe what they are taking on and giving up this lent.
In preparation for Easter we continue on our journey of fasting, praying and giving. There are many positive results of this activity and through this penitential season people give kindly of both time and money.
Mullingar Parish has supported Trócaire and the work that they do across the world for many years. Trócaire responds in the places where there is a great need, such as the refugee crisis or to famines and other natural disasters that affect the most vulnerable in our world. They also invest a great deal in promoting justice for peoples in many countries across the world.
Once again we have been distributing Trócaire boxes in the churches of our parish. This year Trócaire has highlighted how much people have contributed here, and what their contributions have accomplished for those in need. For more information check out http://www.trocaire.org
