Thank you to our parishioners who have continued to support the parish financially during these unusual times through planned giving, standing orders and dues collections. We are grateful for your generosity.
Recently, CHY forms were posted out to some parishioners. To those who signed and returned them, thank you. To those who have not yet, we should be grateful to receive them at your convenience. Once we are in possession of these forms, we can apply to the Revenue Commissioners to claim back the tax you have already paid on your contributions. On contributions of €250 and over, made in the same year, we can claim a rebate at a rate of 30%.

A Note from Maria Campbell
I spoke recently at the weekend masses about a “Power Walk to Zambia – Lighting Up Education” a fundraiser I led in May and June to electrify St. Edmund’s secondary school in Zambia.
I would like to thank Fr. Garrett for allowing me to speak in Monaleen church. I just want to thank everyone for their generosity. I am overwhelmed by the support we received. We collected €1,629 via the church collection and monies dropped into the church during last week. We also received other donations directly to our GoFundMe page. Thank you so much.
The good news is that we have reached and slightly exceeded our target of €18,068 and work begins next Tuesday. Our fundraiser will have a direct and rapid effect on the lives of the school and its community. We will provide an update as the work progresses!
