The Parish Youth Pilgrimage Fund was the beneficiary of the Race Nite held in the Parish Hall.
Each year we help some of the young people in the parish to travel to Lourdes to help with the sick pilgrims. Recently we have also been aiding some of our boys and girls to travel to Bosnia & Herzegovina to the village of Hodovo to which a former refugee settlement is attached. There they help with projects usually centred on the school. The project work is timed to coincide with the Youth Festival in Medjugorje about 25 minutes away.
Much work goes into organising these events. The girls & boys themselves were present to help run the event. Thank goodness parishioners and other friends turned out to support this enjoyable night.
