The example of Simon of Cyrene helping to carry our Lord’s burden has been the inspiration of our Parish Cyrenean Society. Our Parish Cyrenean Society was formed in 1955 and in the early years directed all of its funds to reduce church debt. In more recent times, its principal purpose has been to fund the major renovations of our parish facilities.

In the mid 1990’s, the Parish Finance Committee approved using the Cyrenean Society donations in a separate fund to support the major capital improvements to our Parish facilities. The fund is called the Cyrenean Society Fund. The sources of money to support this fund are the annual Cyrenean Society collection and the second collection at every Sunday Mass throughout the year.
