They are all orphans, and many are also being helped with free schooling and other forms of care.it is the oldest boy or girl who has to care for the others in the family, therefore an education is vitally important for their future survival.please come along and support this very worthy cause.Thanks for all your support and happy holidays when they come!!!

"We want to keep up what the Mission brought us."If you have any suggestions and ideas for following up and building on the experience of the Parish Mission - it might be setting up a Prayer Group, or a faith sharing group, or you might want to get involved in one of the parish’s existing groups, or perhaps make a commitment to become involved in one of the ministries in the parish, then please speak to Fr Mackle.
Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament – By way of a legacy of the Parish Mission, there will be Exposition of the Blessed SacramentSaturday, beginning 24th June, from 10.30am until 12.30pm. Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament is, perhaps, the best way to enter into prayer and draw closer to Jesus outside of Holy Mass.Adoration is sitting quietly before the real presence of Christ, who hears us and who sees us.Please consider coming to spend time in adoration and prayer each Saturday. We would like to have a number of adorers for each half hour, to ensure that the Blessed Sacrament is never left unattended. Sign up sheet for you to initial or sign is in the porch.
During the summer, on Tuesdays from 13th June until 18th July, the church will be open until the later time of 7.30pm for anyone who might want to call in for some peace and quiet prayer.

We’re also thankful to all in the planning and organising team for looking after the BBQ’s preparations and the big clear up at the end of the day. A huge well done to everyone involved.
