Even in an improving economy, it can still take just one small problem to tip someone into crisis and poverty. But we know that a little help at the right time can change everything. This Christmas, over 140,000 people in communities across the country will ask St. Vincent de Paul for help with food, fuel and basic clothing. Some of these are in our community. Please support the SVP Annual Appeal this weekend at the Church Door collections in Millstreet, Ballydaly, Cullen, Derrinagree, Dromagh, and Kilcorney at all Masses. Your help can last a lifetime.

The Transition Year Graduation took place in Millstreet Community School on Tuesday 12th May 2015. Mass was celebrated by Fr. Jack Fitzgerald with students playing an active part in much of the liturgy. Afterwards Mr. Derry Sheehan (Managing Director of Avonmore Electrical) presented a folder containing certificates to every student acknowledging their achievements during the year. Cheques for €500 were then presented to representives from SVP Millstreet and Cork Penny Dinners. This money came from the proceeds of the recent Fashion Show. The €730 cheque for Trocaire was raised by the students through participation in the 24 hour fast during Lent.
