Thanks to the Glenties Traders Association for the completion of their Millennium Project to restore the Church Bell and have it ring automatically. The bell will ring for the Angelus at 12 mid-day and 6p.m. each day, and will call the parishioners to Mass 15minutes before Mass begins. We appreciate the hard voluntary work that was put into this project by the members of the G.T.A. and the fundraising, which has covered the cost of the project.
