From Colm Hogan, Church Manager at Trócaire: 

You may have seen our ad on the TV over the past few weeks highlighting our One Day campaign. For over fifty years, we’ve been working with supporters, Irish Aid, partners, and communities to create positive and lasting change. Our One Day campaign highlights the profound impact of these collective efforts, working together for a just world.

These stories embody the countless “One Days” that have transformed lives, showcasing our shared commitment to compassion, resilience, and hope.

As a priest or religious or parishioner, you are a valued supporter of Trócaire. Your encouragement and practical support has made so many “One Days” possible. Whether promoting the Lenten campaign in your newsletter and from the Altar, inviting a speaker to your church, or returning your parishioners donations, you have contributed in a significant way to the work of Trócaire.

For this often-unseen work, we say to you – Thank You!
