With Christmas on its way the local SVP Conference is concerned about families who will face impossible choices this year. Some will struggle with the decision of heating the house or having a Christmas dinner. If you are in need of assistance you can contact the local charity by writing to SVP C/O Confraternity Rooms, St. Patrick Street, Ballybay or freephone 1800677777 by 8th December. Please only seek help if you are genuinely in need of it.

The local Christmas collections will be held at weekend masses in Tullycorbett on Sunday 3rd December and Ballintra and Ballybay on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th December. Use can also be made of the SVP Envelope which is available in the church porches. Your continuous generosity with this collection would be very much appreciated.
