As Christmas approaches, the giving and receiving of gifts will be a major part of our activities.  Let’s remember those for whom the bare essentials will be a struggle this Christmas.  With this in mind, it is hoped that the parish might play its part by helping the We Care Letterkenny Food Bank (last year we provided toys to be distributed to children).  The We Care Letterkenny Food Bank is an intervention service to help families/individuals in crisis.  We intend to collect NON PERISHABLE Foods (No tins of beans) and to deliver these to the food bank by 12th December.  These goods can be left in the Sacristy or at the Parochial House.  See Facebook – “We Care Lk Food Bank”.
