TROCAIRE BOXES Trocaire boxes are available at the Church entrances. Theme: “So now faith, hope and love abide, these three. But the greatest of these is love” (1 Cor 13:13).

“You will eat and have all you want and you will bless Yahweh your God in the fine country which he has given you.” Deuteronomy 8:10. This year’s Trócaire Lenten campaign highlights the different ways land is stolen from vulnerable people in the developing world.
