It goes towards the furnishing of flowers at the major services of Easter, Harvest Thanksgiving, Christmas and Confirmation, and at some funeral services.
Your generous contribution will help greatly.

Swords needs your help to run the following fundraising events over the coming months:

  • Parish Sale on May 10th
  • Barbeque on May 24th
  • Car Boot Sales (4th Sat each month Apr – Sept)

These fundraising events are essential for the day to day running of the parish and in order for them to be successful your assistance is vital. To volunteer, please contact Eleanor (8402582) or any member of the Select Vestry. As always, donations of Raffle Prizes are need for these events. There’ll be a basket at the back of the Church for your contributions.
Many thanks in advance for your support.

    Who Wants To Be A Thousandaire?
    Swords Select Vestry is considering the possibility of organising ‘Who wants to be a Thousandaire’ in aid of parish funds. This would be a major event, possibly raising in the region of €30,000. It would probably be staged around this time next year with serious work on the project beginning in September. At this stage we are looking for volunteers to form a committee so that we can approach the Marketing Company which oversees this event. The main task of this committee would be to sell tickets and advertising in advance of the show. If you think this is your forte, then please offer your services as soon as possible to Billy (8354755) or to any member of the Select Vestry.
