Weekly Envelope collection

The Newmarket & Taur Parish Envelopes are used throughout the year. New boxes are delivered in December each year. This is to bring our collection into line with the Tax Year (January – December).

  1. The Weekly Parish Envelope which is coloured Yellow is the one paying for all the capital expenditure in both our churches and our small loan.
  2. Priest Offerings: The envelopes marked Spring and Autumn Stations, Easter and Christmas Offering is what supports the Priest of the Parish. Easter Sunday and Christmas Day collections are also given to the Priest. A priest’s salary is made up of these offerings and what he receives from Baptisms, Funerals and Weddings.

Your envelopes can be placed in the Offertory Basket at weekend masses , can be handed into the Parish Office at any time, at the Stations or you may decide to make a once off payment annually. Any contribution you make is much appreciated and we are very grateful. Should your name or address on the envelope box be incorrect please contact the Parish Office on 029-22679 to rectify. The parish benefits greatly from Tax Rebates which are available when a parishioner contributes over €250.00 per annum.
