The Mission Fund

The Mission Fund was established by the Union to provide financial support to the Spiritans' missionary work. The Spiritans (Holy Ghost Fathers) provide direct assistance to the world's poorest regions, where the level of poverty and living conditions is often unimaginable. Although our financial assistance will never compare to the sacrifice of the Spiritans, who have dedicated their lives to such work, it does nonetheless make a very real impact as all money raised goes directly to specific cases or projects. Monies received are applied mainly to educational projects in African missions and other regions.

St Vincent de Paul

"The question which is agitating the world today is a social one. It is a struggle between those who have nothing and those who have too much. It is a violent clash of opulence and poverty which is shaking the ground under our feet. Our duty as Christians is to throw ourselves between these two camps in order to accomplish by love what justice alone cannot do"
Those words, spoken in 1834 by the Founder of the Society of St.Vincent de Paul, Frederic Ozanam, remain accurate in today's world.

Currently, in excess of 15 students from under privileged areas in West Tallaght have been supported in their third level studies.
