The attention of Parishioners is drawn to the notice from the Parish Finance Committee on Church Notice Boards concerning the erection of Memorials in Milltown Graveyard. All plans are to be submitted to the Parish for approval and only the plot allocated according to the graveyard site map can be included in any memorial. We thank parishioners for their cooperation in this regard.

Please join us for the Parish Pilgrimage to the Mass Rock in Glenshane Forest on Sunday 14 June.

Transport from the Ponderosa most of the way to the Mass Rock can be arranged for those unable to walk the full distance (this will still require a short walk over tricky terrain) – please leave your name & number on the list at the back of the Church if this is required.
