Trócaire Campaign – Make Your Box Count

Trócaire Campaign – Make Your Box Count


Dear Parishioners,

I hope this email finds you and yours safe and well during these challenging times.

Pentecost is linked closely with Easter and with Trócaire’s mission. ‘You shall receive power … and you will be my witnesses’ (Acts 1:8). As the disciples received their mission to go out and share the Good News, we in Trócaire are missioned by the Irish Church to go out to the world to care for the most vulnerable.

As you know, donations made through the annual Trócaire Lenten Campaign, especially the Trócaire box, fund lifesaving programmes around the world. Due to the necessary restrictions related to COVID-19, thousands of Trócaire boxes are sitting in homes across Ireland. This is the worst possible time coming just as the world’s poorest people need us most. Millions of people who live without access to adequate water supplies, sanitation and healthcare are now faced with the threat of COVID-19. We have done – and continue to do – so much to protect each other. Now it is time to protect the worlds’ most vulnerable.

The contents of each and every Trócaire box, no matter how small, come together to make a significant difference. This virus knows no borders, but neither does our compassion.

This year, people can return their Lenten donation in several ways:

Online at

  1. By post to any of our offices:
    • Trócaire, Maynooth, Co. Kildare
    • By phone 1850 408 408 (ROI)
  2. By bringing boxes to the priests house at address: 68-70 Maplewood Road, Springfield or contacting pastoral worker Saule on 085 801 8987 to find the best solution for you.


With every blessing,

Caoimhe de Barra
