Church cuts donations request by half

A SLIGO parish has already boosted its income and expenditure account for 2018 by halving the requests for donations.

The number of weekly collection envelopes has been massively scaled back, St Annes Catholic church revealed earlier this week.

Up to now, a total of 2,200 envelope requests for donations was issued each week.

Once Off

This has now been cut to 1,000; “in itself this is a saving of almost €2,000,” said the  parish’s finance committee.

All local households, however, will receive a once-off request for donations to defray renovations and repairs carried out recently on the main church building.
