Don’t forget the Parish meeting next Tuesday night in The Marian Hall starting at 8pm and Fr. Kevin promises it won’t go on all night. He just wants to meet as many parishioners as possible in a nice friendly, relaxed atmosphere with a little bit of food on offer, and the best part of it is, he is not dishing out jobs and not forming committees. He is particularly keen to see members of the various organisations and groups who contribute to the life of the parish.
