This year’s annual retreat will be held at Schoenstatt Retreat Centre in the Campsie Fells.  If you would like to take part please add your name to the list at the back of the church where you will find further information.  A bus has been organised so we would like as many people as possible to use it and keep the cost down. However it is understood that some can’t travel by bus.  Everyone is welcome but this is an adult retreat and would not suit children. By younger people we mean under 60!!  It is also an opportunity to get to know fellow parishioners.  Cost: £20 plus £10 for the bus.
Father John will join us for lunch and the afternoon programme. He will also celebrate mass at the end of the day.If you need financial assistance please don’t hesitate to ask. A telephone number is on the list and any calls will be treated with strictest confidence.
Looking Ahead
CHURCH ORGANISTS  Is there anyone out there willing to lend a hand [or indeed 2 hands !]  and play at Saturday Vigil and Sunday morning Masses ?  Please speak to John McGaffney or Fr John if you can help.  Thank you.
