TROCAIRE BOXES SHOULD BE RETURNED TO THE BASKETS IN THE CHURCH WHEN MASS RESUMES ON EASTER MONDAY OR TO FR. GATES AT THE PAROCHIAL HOUSE.
The new Envelope boxes, which commence on Sunday 11 April, are available for collection at the back of Castledawson Church & in the café in the Parish Centre, arranged in alphabetical order by area. We ask those who are able to call & collect during the day (Mon-Sun) &, if possible, to collect a neighbour’s who may be unable to do so. This will mean that there will be fewer boxes that have to be delivered, in the interests of public safety.
