Support St Vincent de Paul collection

By Dan Walsh

Bishop of Ferns Dr Denis Brennan is calling on people to support the annual church gate St Vincent de Paul collection which takes place this weekend in the Enniscorthy area and the weekend of December 12th-13th in the rest of the Diocese.

Churches are reopened but numbers permitted to attend for public worship are restricted.
In light of this, the bishop is urging people from within the diocese to note the times of Masses in local churches, and to come out, and to support this vital annual appeal.
“Some will be going in (to the church), others will be going by – but the decision to continue with the collection will afford all of us the chance to make direct contact with SVP local members here in the diocese, and to support their efforts,” he stated.

“The decision to proceed with the collection highlights the high value that the local church puts on this collection and the difference it makes to the lives of so many,” the bishop concluded.
