Annual Diocesan Collection for our Student Priests

The Fourth Sunday of Easter is Good Shepherd Sunday, when we pray especially for vocations to the priesthood and religious life. Currently the diocese has ten young men in training for priesthood, one of whom, Conor, is due to be ordained in July. The other students are Andrew, Dominic, Matthew, Conor, Laurence, Philip, James, Kenny and Michael. Please remember them in your prayers.

The second collection on the Fourth Sunday of Easter is the yearly collection for the education of our student priests. Your support of this collection has always been greatly appreciated. Your continued support of this annual church collection on Sunday 29th April 2012 is again requested. Your financial contribution is another concrete way of supporting our students as they journey towards priesthood for service in our parishes.

May Treasure Hunt

Our next Parish Social Event will be a Treasure Hunt which will take place on Sunday 20th May, starting from St Joseph’s Hall at 4.00pm.

Cash Prizes: £100. £50 and £20. Entry fee £20 per car, tickets available from St Comgall’s Parish Office or ‘Pay at the Door’.

Special Treasure Hunt clues will be provided for Primary School Children in the car, with prizes for the winners.

There will be a light supper served afterwards in St Joseph’s Parish Hall. Last year’s Treasure Hunt was a great success thoroughly enjoyed by everyone who took part. Hopefully this year’s event will  be another fun filled occasion that can be enjoyed by all the family.

More volunteers are needed to help with the organisation of the event. If anyone is willing to help in any way, please contact St Comgall’s Parish Office.
