PARISH BUILDING FUND
We wish to thank all those who have contributed so generously to our Parish Building Fund for the works in the Church of the Our Lady of the Assumption. The fund raising ends next Sunday & we are nearing our target for the works. We appeal to those who haven’t yet contributed to consider doing so as we make a final big push towards the end of the appeal. The total amount raised will be announced mid-July. Envelopes are available at all entrances to the Churches, from the Sacristy or the Parish Office.
GRAVEYARD SUNDAY & BLESSING OF THE GRAVES Sunday 29 June at 3pm. Parking will be available in Rossa Park. No parking at Church gate, drop-off only for disabled and elderly. We ask parishioners to please tend to their graves in preparation. Many older graves have no-one to care for them & we appeal to anyone who may be available this week to volunteer for a couple of hours to help John Niblock tend those graves. Alternatively please tend to any neglected grave close to your family grave by removing weeds etc. We thank everyone for their help in this regard. Milltown is a graveyard we can be rightly proud of. We hope to unveil & bless a memorial to all unbaptised children who were buried in unconsecrated ground at graveyard Sunday.
PARISH MASS ROCK PILGRIMAGE Please join us for the Parish Pilgrimage to the Mass Rock in Glenshane Forest on Sunday 6 July. We will meet at the Parish Centre at 10.30am & share cars to the Ponderosa, where most cars can be parked. Allow 1.5 / 2 hours walk each way to the Mass Rock, where Fr Gates will say outdoor Mass, a beautiful event not to be missed. Be prepared for the weather and please bring suitable footwear for this scenic but occasionally rough walk, which is unfortunately not suitable for everyone, moderate fitness required. Bring a packed lunch & plenty of water; for further information contact email@example.com or Fr. Gates.
