You are all warmly invited to our Parish Pilgrimage on Sunday 12 June to the Mass Rock in Glenshane Forest, where Fr Gates will say Mass at 1pm. Please allow 1-2 hours walking from the parking area inside the forest. A lift can be provided most of the way from the parking area, although the last stretch is a bit rough and muddy so it is unfortunately not suitable for all abilities. A minibus will also run from Magherafelt Parish Centre to Glenshane Forest, with limited numbers. Please leave your name in the Parish Office if you require a lift. Contact Róisín 078 4183 6460 or Joe 075 2353 8402 for further details. Please bring a packed lunch.
GRAVEYARD SUNDAY will be at 12 noon on Sunday 26 June in St. John’s Milltown; there will be no Mass at 12 noon in Magherafelt on that day.
