The local SVP Conference is concerned about locals who may need some extra help at this time of year. If you are in need of assistance you can contact the SVP in writing (SVP, C/O Confraternity Rooms, St. Patrick’s Street, Ballybay) before Friday 14th December. Contact can also be made at 1800677777. St. Vincent de Paul wishes to thank all those who contribute financially to collections throughout the year and are seeking continued support towards the annual pre- Christmas Church Gate Collections which will take place on the 8th and 9th December. Your support at the collections would be very much appreciated.
