ST KILLIAN’S CANDLE BURNING SYSTEM 
ike neighbouring parishes, we have decided to ‘trial’ this here in our Church giving you the opportunity to experience the SAFEST, CLEANEST AND MOST ECO-FRIENDLY way of burning candles in Church. Please take a moment to read the information notices beside the stand.
 
AGED & INFIRM CLERGY FUND
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 today Sunday 12th March.
