Millstreet students going on Pilgrimage to Lourdes as helpers at Easter 2023
Following a gap of three years, the Irish Pilgrimage Trust are finally able to hold their pilgrimage to Lourdes at Easter 2023. The other great news is that two 5th year students from Millstreet Community School will be going along as helpers with Group 126. They are Holly Dunne and Rachel Dineen.
The tradition of students from MCS going to Lourdes as helpers with the Irish Pilgrimage Trust goes back ten years or so, but the COVID pandemic brought things to a halt just a month before the 2020 trip was due to take place.
As was the case in the past, the aim is to cover accommodation and travel costs for the two students (€790/person) with all extra funds being passed onto Group 126 (who the girls will be travelling with). Each group is meant to raise the funds to cover the costs of all the young people with special needs who travel with them to Lourdes.
The first fundraising event are two bake sales which will take place in the Millstreet Parish Centre on Saturday 17th December after the 6.15pm Mass and on Sunday 18th December after the 11.30am Mass. Your support for these events would be gratefully appreciated.
