Ensuring Our Legacy. Cathedral Fundraising

Thank you to all that contributed so far. I am delighted to announce we are 75% of the way towards our target. We have reached just over €1.5million in pledges to date. An amazing milestone to surpass.

During the campaign I have met 350 parishioners and sent information packs to over 700 by post. Just over 240 parishioners have contributed and I hope that number can be doubled. If people would like to donate using a monthly envelope please contact Fr Kevin or the Presbytery at the numbers below. To reach our target I need you to:

· Read your information packs

· Consider a gift that is right for you (all donations welcome)

· Drop your form and/or donation to the Presbytery whenever suits

If you don’t have a pack please take one as you exit the Cathedral – they are available in boxes labelled

Ensuring Our Legacy.

In order for everybody to be afforded the opportunity to receive information and ask any questions they wish re the Cathedral / St Augustine’s Hall we will be holding a meeting on Tuesday 7th February at 7.30pm. All are welcome to attend this meeting.

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me.
