Glenties Notes on June 17th 2004

Congratulations to the three girls; Niamh Bonner, Enya Mc Gill and Mary Mc Glynn, who received their First Holy Communion in Fintown on Sunday 6th June2004.

Congratulations and best wishes for many more to Maggie Bonner. Straboy, Glenties, who celebrated her 95th Birthday last week.

We were blessed with a beautiful day for our traditional Corpus Christi Procession, which took place after 11a.m. Mass last Sunday 13th June’04. Local man Fr. Adrian Gavigan carried the Blessed Sacrament. The Procession then proceeded to the Grotto, where there was Benediction. and then back to the Church. Fr. Prendergast recited the Rosary with a hymn by the choir between each decade. With the exception of maybe one or two years the Corpus Christi Procession has taken place in the town for around 60 years. From the first year of the Procession up until a few years ago the Strabane Silver Band came to Glenties for the Procession and added greatly to the occasion.
