Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament in Millstreet Church

The ‘Crying Room’ in Millstreet Church has recently been redecorated and refurbished to facilitate Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament at any time during the week that is suitable, while it still may be used as a ‘crying room’ at weekend masses. It is something that has been requested by many people. A short meeting with a view to organizing a time for the Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament will take place in what is now known as the ‘Blessed Sacrament Chapel’ in the Church on Tuesday night next (March 9th ) at 8.00 p.m. It will need to be run by lay people themselves. Anybody interested in organizing or becoming involved in the ‘Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament’ in the Church is invited to attend.
