If you opt to pay on-line, Fr. Conlon will get a statement at the end of each month with names of parishioners that have signed up and amount that has been contributed. This money will then be transferred to Ballycastle/Belderrig Church accounts. If you have any questions on this, please ring the parish house Tuesday – Friday from 1pm – 3pm.
