Wicklow & Rathnew Parish Lotto

Join our lotto to help raise funds for the parish and you could win up to €5,000

I am delighted to announce the launch of our Parish Fundraiser Lotto. It’s a fundraising initiative that I hope will be of great benefit to the parish. The Jackpot increases weekly up to a maximum of €5,000. Please pass on the word on and invite friends and family to take part. There is a lot of on-going maintenance work that needs to be done in both churches, such as treating the dampness in the walls and upgrading the lighting system in St. Patrick’s and repairing the windows and getting new flooring for St. Joseph’s.

– Fr. Aquinas

It’s really simple to join and it takes just a minute. To find out more: click here, call into the parish office or call 01 546 1131.
