Notice about Trocaire boxes

Below is the information which we encourage you to share with your diocesan
offices/colleagues and parishioners about Trócaire over the coming weeks, while staying
safe at home.
 Trócaire Boxes: This time of year, we would usually get back tens of thousands of
boxes but that will not be possible this year, at a time when the developing world
needs our help the most. If you can, please donate online or over the phone. Please
do hold onto your boxes until further notice and we will be in contact about how to
return them when it will be safe for people to do so.
 Donations can be made online at https://www.trocaire.org/donate/make-a-donation
 We have several resources available online at www.trocaire.org/parish. In particular,
we have a Stations of the Cross resource that we would encourage you to use on
Good Friday and to share with your Diocesan contacts.
