Important information on the Trócaire Boxes and upcoming events
Trócaire Boxes: This time of year, we would usually get back tens of thousands of boxes but that will not be possible this year, at a time when the developing world needs our help the most. If you can, please donate online or over the phone. Please do hold onto your boxes until further notice and we will be in contact about how to return them when it will be safe for people to do so. · Donations can be made online at https://www.trocaire.org/donate/make-a-donation · We have several resources available online at www.trocaire.org/parish. In particular, we have a Stations of the Cross resource that we would encourage you to use on Good Friday and to share with your Diocesan contacts.
The below workshops may be of interest for parishioners:
· Family reflection: Monday 6th April, 11am. This will be a short, prayerful suitable for families and children. It will be led by Anna from our church team and will be delivered over Zoom. To register, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
· Workshop on Laudato Sí: Wednesday 8th April, 11am. This workshop will be led by Jane Mellett, our Living Laudato Sí officer, and will be focused on how we can all care for our common home. To register, please email email@example.com
· ‘Trócaire Together: From our home to yours’. Starting after Easter, these will be short videos of reflections, prayer and solidarity led by staff members from across the organization. They will be available on our social media channels for you to access at times that best suits you. Please keep an eye on our social media for these – the first one will be posted at noon on Thursday April 16th
As we approach one of the most prayerful weeks of the Church’s year, let us thank you again for your ongoing prayers, support and solidarity. It means so much to all of us in Trócaire.
