Parishes Building a Just World:

As an agency of the Catholic Church, we want to give parishioners a sense of ownership of Trócaire’s work. We work with parishes by providing resources, workshops and speakers that bring Trócaire’s work to life. This work is carried out on an ongoing basis but is particularly important during Lent. Last year, Trócaire staff and volunteers spoke at 486 Masses across 148 parishes throughout the Lenten period. Our Lent resource, which focused on the issue of climate change, was downloaded 1,366 times from and posted to approximately 1,360 parishes and pastoral workers across all dioceses. We are building our volunteer network throughout parishes. The parish volunteer initiative has been launched in the Archdiocese of Armagh, Diocese of Cloyne and Diocese of Kerry, and over the coming months will be launched in Dublin. Ultimately, our intention is to build a network of Trócaire volunteers in all dioceses. Visit for more information.
