Friday 20th September, 2013.

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?

Come along, young and old and share your ideas.  Pass the word around and bring a friend if you can.                                                    Liz O’Regan & Veronica Lyons
