Trócaire Lenten Campaign– Matched Funding Initiative: Trócaire are delighted to inform you that they have surpassed their target for matched funding by the UK government in the Trócaire Lenten Campaign. This could only have been achieved through the generosity and solidarity of parishioners, and their co-operation in ensuring that their contributions were made within a time frame that allowed Trócaire to claim matched funding from the government. Trócaire ask you to accept their sincere gratitude for your crucial role in helping them to achieve this successful outcome. Response to crisis in Iraq: Trócaire has committed an initial €300,000 to support their Caritas partners in responding to the evolving emergency and assess the needs of vulnerable populations, the most pressing of which are food, water and essential living supplies.
