Capuchin Day Centre Fund Raiser: Marie Colleran, family & friends are having a tea/coffee afternoon (with a little difference) on Thursday 8th Dec from 12noon to 4pm in The Oakland Centre, Glaslough.

The Feast of The Immaculate Conception - Thursday 8th December, praying The Hour of Grace in St Patrick's Church, Corracrin between 12 noon and 1 pm. All welcome. Clogher Diocesan Pilgrimage to Lourdes from 7-12 July 2023 This pilgrimage will be led by Bishop Larry Duffy. It will be the first in-person pilgrimage to Lourdes from the diocese since July 2019. The cost is from €899 per person sharing, including insurance. This also includes hotel accommodation, meals and return flights from Belfast. BOOKING PROCEDURE Booking forms available from the Pilgrimage Secretary Mr. John Heuston, Tel: 048 67724329 Email: john.cdp@btconnect.com or online at www.clogherlourdes.com Seeing your life through the lens of the Gospel John appears in the story as one who had the courage to be himself in the face of opposition. He was also a person who knew his own value, did not make exaggerated claims and was content with his mission. Can you recall times when you have been content to be yourself, without pretending to be more that you are? What was it like to have that freedom, even in the face of criticism from others? John was “the voice of one crying out in the wilderness” announcing confidently to those in the wilderness that they must not despair because God’s grace may come to them at any moment. Have you had the experience of being in the wilderness, feeling lost? From whom did you hear a voice that gave you hope? Have you been able to give hope to other people when they were in the wilderness? Oriel Singers Christmas Concert will be held in Ulster Canal Stores, Clones on Friday 9th December at 7pm. All welcome. Admission €10. Emyvale Tidy Towns The committee is doing a GoFundMe fundraiser online and asking everyone to consider donating. It has been two years since the last fundraiser. All donations will be put to very good use to enhance Emyvale over the coming year. Please help the volunteers to keep up their good work. Here is the link: Fundraiser by Emyvale Tidy Towns : Emyvale Tidy Towns (gofundme.com) You can also donate directly to any committee member.
