HCPT Pilgrimage to Lourdes 
Would you like to travel to Lourdes next Easter with HCPT Group 128? Are you aged 18 or over and strong? 
We are looking for some new helpers to join us when we take some special children to Lourdes. You will need to agree to be dbs checked and be able to pay your own fare. The dates of the pilgrimage are Monday 2nd to Sunday 8th April 2018.  
Please let any of the HCPT helpers (Sheila Kehoe, Sally Fahy or Siobhan Ferguson) know if you'd like more information. 
There will also be a FAMILY GAMES NIGHT  at Botwell on the 25th November 2017 £5 a person, £ 10 a family from 7:30 –10 pm. Tickets are available in the parish office. Light refreshments provided. Bring your own drinks. Fun for all the family while we raise money to send children to Lourdes.
For Eucharistic Ministers
A Training day has been arranged  for Saturday 25th November from 10.00am to 3.00pm. for any member of the congregation who is interested in becoming a Eucharistic Minister.
An excellent opportunity for all ages to discover what is involved and if they wish to share in this great ministry, please come and find out.
Children’s Liturgy of The Word.
Note for parents: Children’s Liturgy  of the Word is a practice of children leaving the Sunday assembly during the Liturgy of the Word, to gather elsewhere to celebrate a separate Liturgy to enable them to take a more conscious and active part in liturgical celebrations. It takes place at the 12noon Mass.
