Our Altar Shelter and Covid Remembrance Garden were formally opened and blessed by the Bishop of Kerry , Ray Browne on Friday 12th August 2022 in front of a large attendance
This project was completed on time, within budget and in line with planning requirements.
Over the last two years we invested a total of €25872 in delivering the Altar Shelter, the Covid Remembrance Garden along with our informative website www.kilnaughtin.ie This was funded by voluntary donations of €20,377 with the balance covered by our cash reserves. Our reserves now stand at €1327 in credit. You can still donate either online via our website or with any member of the committee.
The Project has involved professional planning, on-going oversights, skilled labour, craftsmanship, financial resources by way of voluntary donations, an immense level of dedicated time given freely by a host of volunteers, materials, sourced locally in so far as was possible, given on a pro bono basis in many cases and an incalculable level of goodwill from our local communities. For all of this and so much more we say a most sincere Thank You.
The financial results are made more remarkable, with a credit balance in the account at the 30th September 2022 of €1327,(our balance sheet figure at the 30 th September 2022) despite the very significant price inflation on materials in 2022. In addition there was no ‘church gate’
collection in 2020 and 2021 due to Covid 19 restrictions and reduced our income over this period by €3000 approximately.
