Everyone is invited to the Parish Centre for a “Gathering” and refreshments after 7.30p.m. Mass on 20th September.  As members of the Millstreet Parish Family we wish to have an open discussion around: “What would enhance your Faith Life?”

Any suggestion to deepen your sense of belonging to the Parish? 

What needs could realistically be met?
