CAMINO DE SANTIAGO WALK:  Kilcurry Church is a very fine Church and is regularly used for Baptisms, Weddings and Funerals, as well as the weekly Masses. However, it is over 30 years since it was painted and the flaking paint on the walls highlights the fact that it is badly in need of a makeover! Parishioners will be delighted to know that the project this year is to paint the inside of the Church.

This project will be very expensive and in order to offset the costs Fr. Vinod will be walking the Camino and he asks all Parishioners to support him by sponsoring him with whatever you can afford, even a small donation will be very welcome as the fund will grow if everybody helps.

Donations can be given at any of Churches, envelopes and sponsor cards will be provided from this weekend.  Thank you most sincerely for your support.
