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.

Accommodation required for school retreat team members o/n 17th November, Millstreet

There will be a retreat for 2nd year and Junior Cert students on Tuesday 18th November in Millstreet Parish Centre.  It will be run by NET Ministries, a group of Catholic young adults who run schools retreats around Ireland.  NET teams have been with us in Millstreet running retreats for each of the last seven years.

For the last two years, the team members have been accommodated by local families on the night before the retreat.  We are doing the same this year.  Accommodation has been found for eight of the ten team members for Monday 17th November.  Thank you to those who will be welcoming them into their homes.  I still have two team members to find accommodation for.  If anyone can provide them with accommodation on Monday night, please contact John Magee at Millstreet Community School (029 70087). Thank you.
