At their Spring General Meeting the Irish Bishops asked that a special collection be taken up in parishes on Sunday 27 March. This national collection will be sent to Caritas Internationalis. This is the helping hand of the Church in Ukraine and surrounding areas.

Our thanks to those who have already contributed to the “Order of Malta – Ukraine collection” by leaving in donations last week. €1,750 was raised and has been sent directly to the Order of Malta. This goes to support the work that the Order of Malta is already doing in Ukraine and also in Poland.
