Offertory Envelopes
Will be distributed to households in the Parish during the next fortnight. If you are new to the area or are not currently using envelopes and would like to contribute to the weekly Offertory Collection, please contact the Parish Office in Athlone 090-6492171 or Drum 090-6437125 to arrange a box of envelopes. A word of thanks is due to all those who help each year with the distribution of envelopes. This in itself is a huge task and if you would like to help in delivering envelopes in the areas that have no distributors, contact the Parish Office and your help would be greatly appreciated.
