“We wish to sincerely thank everyone who played a part in our recent successful Harvest Fair Festival. To all our sponsors, local businesses, stall holders, craftspeople and farmers, who helped create such a great atmosphere, a heartfelt thank you also to the local Gardaí, and County Council Personnel, for the road closures and street cleaning. A special thank you to all those who entered floats in the parade an helped with the Wild West Theme, and to all our musicians and entertainers thank you also. Finally to all the people of Glenties and beyond who turned out in such number and created such a buzz, thank you for your support and appreciation. We now turn our attention to our Halloween Weekend on the October Bank Holiday weekend, and hope for similar success and crowds as we saw at the Harvest Fair. Thank you to everyone again.”

Mission Sunday:

The total raised in the Collection will be sent in its entirety to support mission projects worldwide.

Message from World Missions Ireland:
The Theme for Mission Sunday in Ireland this year is ‘That they may have life’ life in all its richness and dignity; The richness of knowing the Gospel and Jesus Christ, and the dignity of having food to eat, a roof to sleep under, and work to go to. Through their work, our missionaries strive to make all this a reality for the people they serve. We are invited to reflect on our call to bring Christ to others, while remembering to pray and to assist the young churches that they may have the spiritual and financial resources to grow and in turn announce the Good News.
