Blessing of Graves
Sunday 7th July, New Graveyard Glenties
Due to the great numbers of people from near and far who prayerfully attend the Graveyard Prayers during the summer months and after reflection, I propose having Graveyard Prayers and Blessings in place of Mass as has been the case up to now.  This change will bring us in line with most of the neighbouring Parishes and is being done as a means to prioritise Health and Safety.  This is particularly relevant due to the great numbers, especially the large portion of elderly people who attend.  I hope that you will understand the rationale behind this change and thank you for your understanding.

Youth Pilgrimage to Croagh Patrick
It is hoped to take a group of young people from the Parish of secondary school age, from 3rd year upward, on a one day pilgrimage to Croagh Patrick, Co Mayo on Thursday 25th April.  After ascending the reek, we hope to have Mass on the summit in the Oratory Chapel.  There would be time to stop for a meal on the return journey.  The cost of the transport would be a parish cost with each person paying for their own meal. Each person under 18 years wishing to take part must complete a “Child Consent Form” and parents/guardians a “Parental Consent Form” which are available in the Parochial House.

Upcoming Activities at the Downstrands Family Resource Centre, Portnoo.
Activities for 2019 include Yoga, Nutrition & Fitness, Creative Writing, Piloxing, Knitting, Creating Happy, Art for All, Patchwork, Archaeology, Feng Shui, Stress Control, Safe Talk and Introduction to Grow.  Children’s Activities include badminton, basketball, judo and Bricks 4 Kids.   Grinds for Leaving Certificate start this Saturday, 12th January in the Hub Youth Centre.  For more information or to book a place, please do not hesitate to contact the office on 0749545879. (Leaflets can be obtained in the health centre, the post office, The Highlands Hotel and Glenties Service Station).
