THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT

This has been a very challenging and painful year for everyone. It has also been a year when we have seen wonderful examples of community support and people supporting one another. It is particularly difficult that people cannot come to Mass and we eagerly look forward to the day when we can return. 

We appealed to parishioners to continue to support the parish as best they could and there has been a generous response for which we are most grateful and encouraged.

Although our income has reduced substantially we have been able to run the parish and to make progress in reducing our parish debt. We are pleased to report that our debt on the 31 Dec 2020 is €99,790. This is a big achievement during these difficult times. 

We have a large and vibrant Parish that we can be proud of. We ask for your continued support and together we will face these challenges. 

We thank you for your support and generosity.  The Parish Finance Committee

Given the COVID-19 precautionary measures, our churches are inaccessible for the faithful. Participation in the daily sacraments is beyond reach for them. Shalom World TV, a Catholic media ministry of the Shalom Ministries, is an official partner with the Vatican and is authorized to telecast papal liturgies directly via its free high-definition television channel. Shalom World is committed to producing free yet high-quality Catholic content such as Daily Mass, devotionals, shows, music, youth programs, children’s programs, conventions, retreats, and cultural exchange segments. The programming is absolutely free and can be watched live or on-demand. The most recent addition, in response to COVID-19, is a 4th channel to the existing 3 channels, for exclusive live telecast of daily Holy Mass around the clock, with special prayers for an end to coronavirus .

We are broadcasting Daily Mass Live from Saints Peter and Paul's Church, Portlaoise, Co. Laois at 10:00 am everyday during this challenging time.

Bishop Denis Nulty, Diocese of Kildare and Leighlin is our patron in Ireland  and Shalom World is endorsed by Catholic leaders from around the globe .
