Trócaire Collection will be taken up next weekend Mar. 23 & 24 (Envelope provided in your box). Please be as generous as you can. Questions People Ask: What guarantee do we have that the money collected actually gets out to the people in need? The bishops had this question in mind when they set up Trócaire. Fully audited accounts are available for inspection. Spending on general management administration is kept down to four per cent of total expenditure while five per cent is spent on publicity and fundraising. Trócaire's ideal of sharing with the poor, feeding the hungry and working for justice gives new purpose to self-denial.
