Kilcurry church is a very fine church, and is regularly used for Baptisms, Weddings and Funerals, as well as 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 for this year is to paint the inside of the church. This project will be very expensive and in order to offset the cost, Fr. Vinod will be walking the Camino Primitivo 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 the churches. Envelopes and sponsor cards will be provided in all churches. Thank you most sincerely for your support.
