The University of Ulster is undertaking an independent survey of mass-goers at St. Eugene’s Parish in Londonderry to find how they think money should be raised for the controversial Stewardship Trust Fund.
The fund, set up by Irish Bishops, helps compensate victims of abuse by Catholic Priests and to fund child protection initiatives.
Fr Michael Canny said he was “prepared to adide” by the findings of the survey.
Donate to keep Slugger lit!
For over 20 years, Slugger has been an independent place for debate and new ideas. We have published over 40,000 posts and over one and a half million comments on the site. Each month we have over 70,000 readers. All this we have accomplished with only volunteers we have never had any paid staff.
Slugger does not receive any funding, and we respect our readers, so we will never run intrusive ads or sponsored posts. Instead, we are reader-supported. Help us keep Slugger independent by becoming a friend of Slugger.
While we run a tight ship and no one gets paid to write, we need money to help us cover our costs.
If you like what we do, we are asking you to consider giving a monthly donation of any amount, or you can give a one-off donation. Any amount is appreciated.
