Please join us for the Parish Pilgrimage to the Mass Rock in Glenshane Forest on Sunday 14 June. We will carpool from the Parish Centre at 10.30am, park at the Ponderosa & aim to start walking by 11.30am. 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. Be prepared for the weather & please bring suitable footwear for this scenic 6km walk. Do bring a packed lunch!
