All the delicious baking was sold out by the end of the Lourdes Bake Sale held in the Parish Centre following the 11.30 am Mass on Sunday, 18th Dec. 2022 resulting in one of the most successful ever Lourdes Fundraising Projects with a grand total of a very impressive €1,200.00 for which the Organisers are most grateful.

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.
Thanks to all of you who supported the cake sale held on Saturday 10th December 2017 in Millstreet Parish Centre to support Una Buckley and Dervla Murphy who’ll be going to Lourdes as helpers with the Irish Pilgrimage Trust at Easter 2017. €508 was raised. Thank you.
A bake sale will take place on Saturday 14th February 2015 in Millstreet Parish Centre after 6.30pm Mass to raise money for the six 5th year students from Millstreet Community School who will be going to Lourdes at Easter 2015 with IHCPT – The Irish Pilgrimage Trust as helpers. The students are Lauren Buicke, Amy McSweeney, Andrea Guerin, Maire Ellen O’Connor, Darren Kiely and Sean Guerin. This will be their final fundraising event before they travel to Lourdes. The fare for their travel and accommodation will be about €650/person. Your support for this event would be appreciated. Thank you.
Please note: unlike for the bake sale which took place in December 2014, cakes will not be on sale after the 11.30am Mass on Sunday 15th.
