Trócaire Boxes are available in all Church Porches in Imeall Boirne from this weekend. Trócaire provides humanitarian assistance and long-term support to communities in over twenty countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East. Last year, 2.6 million people directly benefited from our overseas programmes. In Ireland, Trócaire also raises awareness about the root causes of poverty and inequality, and campaigns on justice issues. 

Be generous with Trócaire during Lent. 

Lord Jesus, bless every household throughout the world. Give comfort and consolation to families who suffer from sickness, poverty, anxiety or distress. Amen.
