Last year we celebrated the 80th anniversary of Cavan Cathedral. Despite the completion of the cathedral renovation, there is still a financial cost for the works to be paid. Father Kevin has raised €1.8 million of his €2 million goal. It is testament to parishioners and diaspora that this project is succeeding. The fundraising campaign is now at crucial stage and Bishop Hayes has asked all the faithful in the Diocese to consider making a contribution to this landmark campaign.   

Information packs are available at the back of church after Mass. You may take one, if interested, and make a sacrificial donation that is right for you.
