                    Parish Mission   ----Update

“Time with God, Time for Me”.



A huge amount of preparation has taken place already with a number of planning meetings with the mission team from the Ceile Community. It is great to so many people looking forwards to the mission and showing such enthusiasm for it.

We thank all the school for their support for the school mission team, who will be with them from 5th to 16th February.

We express our extreme gratitude to our parishioners who have generously offered B&B for the school mission team and the mission visitation team who will be here from the 10th to 18th February.

In due course we will be co-ordinating this aspect of the mission.


How Can You Help. 

We thank all who have volunteered to accompany a member of the visiting team to the homes of the parish. But we need more.

Because of the size of the parish, we are looking for as many parishioners as possible who will be willing to accompany a member of the visiting team on their visits. Can you spare any time on the afternoons or evenings of any day from 11th to 18th February. Please let Fr. Patrick or Fr. Gerry know in the next week if you can help us.
