Trocaire “…to lend your neighbour a helping hand is to keep the commandments.” Ecclesiasticus / Sirach 29:1.  This St. Patrick’s weekend we celebrate the huge change brought about in the developing world which is made possible by the generosity of people in Ireland.  Trócaire reached 2.6 million people last year with support – parents trying to feed their children, communities struck by disaster, refugees fleeing conflict, men and women whose rights were being trampled.  This support can only be provided by the ongoing solidarity shown by people here at home.

Trocaire Collection may be handed in next weekend or Holy Week.
