OutreachWe actively support a number of Outreach Programmes both overseas and at home and allocate a minimum of 10% of our Direct Giving income to specific charities on an annual basis.

The two main programmes which we currently support are TRUST and The Leprosy Mission.

TRUST was founded in 1975, working with people who are homeless in Dublin. TRUST is a non-political, non-denominational voluntary body set up in 1975 as a private charitable trust to provide medical and related services for people who are homeless. Our main contribution to the work of TRUST involves a monthly collection of clothing and other items, organized by the Mothers’ Union in St. Andrew’s Parish Centre on the first Wednesday of every month at 10.30am.

If you feel you can assist the project in any way please contact any member of the Mothers’ Union committee or call into the Parish Centre on the first Wednesday of the month.

Our overseas Outeach partner is the Leprosy Mission.

The Leprosy Mission (TLM) Ireland, an Irish charity, is the oldest branch of The Leprosy Mission International, globally recognised as a world leader in leprosy care, cure, rehabilitation and prevention.

The mission project we support is the restoration to full use, of hands stiffened and disfigured by leprosy. The cost to carry out one procedure in many African countries is less than €50, hence a small amount of money can have a major impact on people’s lives. We collect donations in pottery constructed pigs and forward the donations to the Leprosy Mission.

If you feel that you would like to get involved with this project, please contact the rector.
