WALK TO KILLEENAGH HOLY WELL AND PARISH BARBECUE:  The annual walk to Killeenagh Holy Well, will take place on Sunday next, May 26. The walk will conclude with a barbecue for all present. Over the years it has become a great parish and community event. The visit to Killeenagh Well in Dromtrasna has a special link with the celebration of Confirmation in the parish. On Tuesday, March, 26 the children who received Confirmation this year, took part in what is called the ‘Abbeyfeale Initiative’. This is a programme on healthy life choices, run by the Catholic Church for Confirmation students with the help of Transition Year students, who are trained to deliver the programme to the children in sixth class.   It has been up and running very successfully in the parish for eleven years.  The programme concludes with the annual walk to Killeenagh Holy Well, where the young people from the Confirmation Class make a commitment to abstain from alcohol and drugs during their teenage years. As an acknowledgment of their participation in the programme, the children receive wrist bands which are very popular with them, and the visit to the Well concludes with a barbecue on Cotter’s farmyard.  We are grateful to the Cotter family for hosting us once again.   Put next Sunday in your diary and join us for the Walk and barbecue. People should assemble at Dromtrasna School at 2.45pm.  The walk will begin at 3.00p.m sharp. All are welcome.

MAY DEVOTIONS: The month of May has traditionally been known as the month of The Blessed Virgin Mary.  We are invited to honour her by reciting the Rosary daily.  On Wednesday May 29 we will have a special service honouring our Blessed Mother which will include the crowning of Mary in Duagh Church.
