Take the pledge
WITH LENT beginning next Wednesday, February 25, those considering abstaining from alcohol for the 40day period can get in touch with the Pioneer Association if they wish to take the pledge.
The Queen of Peace branch can be contacted on 01 2874257. Those who choose to do so can take the shortterm pledge just for the duration of Lent, until April 12.
Those who enrol are asked to abstain from all intoxicating drink, to recite a prayer twice a day and to wear the Pioneer emblem. There will be members outside Mass on Sunday to advise those thinking about taking the pledge.
