ARCHDIOCESAN NEWS
 
ADDITIONAL SPECIAL COLLECTION FOR AGED AND INFIRM CLERGY
At present we have to care for around 25 retired and infirm clergy. Even with the restrictions that age and infirmity brings, many live well on into old age and require long-term continuing support from AICF. To this end it has been agreed to try and increase funds by holding a special second annual collection for AICF after week-end Masses over 11/12 June.  The Archdiocese will provide us with a supply of ‘special collection’ envelopes, each with a GIFT AID declaration on them.  All the envelopes will be collected up after week-end Masses over 11/12 June. They will not need to be recorded against parish donor Gift Aid records.
