Church Conservation Fundraising Launch – takes place after 11.00 am Mass next Sunday (March 4th). The launch will be performed by Mayo Person of the Year 2018 – Sr. Maureen Lally. Top prizes to the value of €20,000 are on offer. Tickets cost €10 each or a book of 6 for €50. Draw will be held on September 8th. A big collective push will be needed from the community to sell tickets, the majority of which will have to be sold outside the parish to raise the level of funds that are needed to complete our Church Restoration project. To this end, we are asking each household to consider taking 4 books of tickets, with a view to selling them to relations and friends at home and abroad (but away from Straide) who have connections to out Church. If it is not possible to sell a full book for €50 to one individual, it may be easier to sell the 6 tickets separately for €10 each to six individuals.
We already have a very hard-working fundraising committee in existence, however we will need more volunteers at this stage to assist. If you are willing to get involved and help, please come along to a meeting on Tuesday evening at 7.30 pm in the Church where final arrangements will be put in place. And even though the Draw does not take place until September 8th, we are relying heavily on early sales (and return of monies) to ease our bank balance. So, please come along to that meeting on Tuesday evening (Feb 27th) to get involved and to help out with our Church Conservation Project.Share
