Urgent Appeal from Children’s liturgy Group: Unfournately 4 of our adult leaders have stepped down for various reasons & at the moment we are unable to continue with our Children’s Liturgy on Sunday mornings. Therefore, we are urgently appealing for new adults to come on board & help out. We have been in operation since 2001 & over the years many children have enjoyed reading & exploring the message of the Gospel with us in a relaxed & child friendly atmosphere. It would be a pity if it came to an end now. We work in groups of 3 adults on a 5 week rota during the school term.  If you are interested please contact Siobhan 086 3354727 or Patricia 096 1067298. You can leave a message with the Parish Secretary or any of the Priests. We will be delighted to hear from you.
