Urgent accommodation request for retreat team o/n Wed. 29th March

The 1st students at Millstreet Community School have a retreat on Thursday 30th March 2017 in Millstreet Parish Centre.  The retreat will be run by NET ministries, who are based in Co. Donegal and this will be the tenth year they’ve been to Millstreet.

Thanks to those who have already volunteered to host members of the retreat team.  All seven girls (18-25 year olds) have been accommodated.

We have not managed to find acommodation for the five boys (18-25 year olds) yet.  If anyone was in a position to host them that would be great. They need to be accommodated in a pair and a group of three.

If there are families able to give them accommodation and a simple meal on the evening of Wednesday 29th March (they’ll be arriving in Millstreet at about 6.30pm), and breakfast on Thursday 30th March, that would be great.  They need to be back at the Parish Centre for between 8.00am or 8.15am on the Thursday so they can get ready for the retreat.  If you can help please contact Millstreet Community School on 029 70087  as soon as possible. Thank you in advance for your help.
