New Parish Environmental Group Formed
The group is meeting about once every four weeks for around 90 minutes on Wed evenings at 7.45 pm.
As a first concrete step the Group is organizing a LITTER CLEAN UP in the Church grounds and on the roads and green areas in its vicinity. This will be held on Sat 18th Nov from 11.00 am to 12.00 noon.
More details in subsequent bulletins.
As Pope Francis has said: “All of us can cooperate as instruments of God for the care of creation, each according to his or her own culture involvements and talents” (Laudato Si, par 14).
Parishioners are invited to participate in the litter clean-up and will be warmly welcomed and encouraged to join the new parish environment group.
TAX RELIEF SCHEME
Letters and Claim forms have gone to parishioners who donated more than €250 to Holy Family Parish during 2015 and or 2016. There are two CHY3 forms one for each year.
*CHY3 – Enduring Declaration means we won’t need to contact you for 5 years,
What should you do?
* Please fill out the form and return it to us.
* If you didn’t receive a letter/form and wish to participate, please get a form from the office, fill it out; and return it.
* If you did receive a letter and do not wish to participate, please return the form in the envelope, and we will not contact you again.
* CHY4 – Annual Declaration is only for one year and is available in the parish office.
We look forward to hearing from you as soon as possible. Many thanks.
Many parishioners have filled out the CHY3 form, so they won’t be hearing from us this year.
