Bicentenary Gifts

Preparing the way for the future…
The parish of St. Michan in Halston Street was constituted in 1096 making it one of the oldest parishes in the diocese. We are fortunate to be living in such an historic part of Dublin, the significance of which can be lost on some as they come and go for business and other reasons. There are two Catholic churches in our parish – the parish church of St. Michan (Halston Street) and the friary church of St. Mary of the Angels (Church Street). The parish is presently under the care of the Capuchin Franciscan Order.
As the year of celebration for the bicentenary of St. Michan’s Church closes, the restoration and maintenance of this beautiful church continues. Having restored the floors and painted the interior of the church in time for the Bicentenary Mass on 25th August 2017, we are hoping to paint the ceiling during 2018. We are fortunate that we have been able to cover the cost of all work so far with funds raised through the fundraising options below, Conservation Grants, Heritage Grants, Bequests and extremely generous donations from a few parishioners and friends. You can help us continue this essential work. Here are just a few ways you can help…

1) Purchase a copy of the parish publications from the Parish Office or after Mass in Halston Street
2) Bank Mandate - Set up a Standing Order to instruct your bank to transfer a fixed amount to the Restoration Fund account regularly.
3) Sponsor a Pane – €100 sponsorship and your memorial registered. Contact the Parish Secretary or check online for details.
4) Sign up for a Weekly Envelope (all monies received through the Planned Giving Envelope goes directly towards the upkeep of St. Michan’s Church.). Contact the Parish Secretary for your box.
