The attention of     Parishioners is drawn to the notice from the Parish Finance Committee on     Church Notice Boards concerning the erection of Memorials in Milltown     Graveyard.  All plans are to be     submitted to the Parish for approval and only the plot allocated according     to the graveyard site map can be included in any memorial.  We thank parishioners for their     cooperation in this regard.

PARISH     PILGRIMAGE TO THE MASS ROCK IN GLENSHANE FOREST

   

Please join us for the     Parish Pilgrimage to the Mass Rock in Glenshane Forest on Sunday 14 June.  We will carpool from the Parish Centre at     10.30am, park at the Ponderosa & aim to start walking by 11.30am.  Transport from the Ponderosa most of the     way to the Mass Rock can be arranged for those unable to walk the full     distance (this will still require a short walk over tricky terrain) –     please leave your name & number on the list at the back of the Church     if this is required.  Be prepared for     the weather & please bring suitable footwear for this scenic 6km     walk.  Do bring a packed lunch!
