Getting Back on Track Financially

Most of us have some level of debt, but when unpaid debt becomes such a burden that it prevents you from getting out of bed in the morning, brings a sense of dread when answering the phone or opening the post, it is time to take control of the situation.

The unfortunate reality is that due to the impact of COVID-19 many more people in Ireland may be struggling to pay their debts having recently lost their jobs or struggling to make ends meet on reduced incomes.

The Insolvency Service of Ireland (ISI) can help. The ISI is the independent government body with four debt solutions to help people with all levels of problem debt - from credit cards to mortgages. It regulates debt advisors called Personal Insolvency Practitioners (PIPs).

If you are insolvent and in arrears on your home mortgage you could also be eligible for a free consultation with a PIP under the State-funded Abhaile Scheme. The purpose of that Scheme is to help people in serious arrears to find the best available solutions, with the help of professional advisors. The priority will be to find a sustainable solution that keeps a person in their home, where possible.

Sponsored Walk for Kindu

Canon Patrick writes:
From Tuesday to Thursday 4-6th August Carla and myself are aiming to walk the Sligo Way, 80 km in total. We are doing this to raise money for our link diocese of Kindu in DR Congo. While we were in lockdown here they experienced severe flooding on top of all their other problems. Money is needed to help some of the most vulnerable families rebuild their lives. €25 would help one family with the essentials they need.

But, it might be that some of you would like to join us. On one of the days or for part of a day, we would welcome some company, so long as all are socially distanced.

Alternatively, why not try and walk 80 km yourself over a longer period of time and along the route of your choice. Perhaps you could ask people to sponsor you too!

To get more information email rector@calry.ie Look out next week for details how to sponsor the walk.

Watch this space for Youth Event on Saturday 1st August.
