Derek Buglass, Archdiocesan Director of Finance writes….Last year we asked for your assistance in meeting the additional funding requirements of the AICF.  The spring and autumn collections raised £112K which with Gift Aid came to £125K  3 x the amount collected in 2015. The financial challenges of supporting increasing numbers of elderly and infirm clergy continue and so we are holding 2 special collections again this year.  The first is next Sunday 12th March. If you are a tax-payer and wish to Gift Aid your donation please pick up an envelope as you leave Mass and return it next week-end.
