Fun at St Patrick’s
ST PATRICK’S Missionary Society opened its grounds and welcomed the local community to its annual family day in Kiltegan on Sunday.
Many local residents attended the event which started with an outdoor Mass and offered an abundance of family fun.
The society grounds were looking in great shape for the event which saw a huge marquee erected to shield guests from the heatwave, and colourful bunting hanging throughout.
After Mass, a large bring and share picnic was enjoyed and later in the afternoon there was live music, sports events, quizzes, and afternoon tea.
A display of work done by the missionary was also on show for all to look at.
There was plenty to keep the younger guests entertained as they enjoyed the bouncy castle and face painting, as well as some sweet treats before they tested their speed in the races.
St Patrick’s Missionary Society extended thanks to all the staff, priests and volunteers who helped to make the day such a success and to all those who came along to enjoy it.
The next event in the diary is a workshop on Justice, Peace and the Integrity of Creation which takes place on Saturday, July 21 from 9.30 a.m. to 12.50 p.m. at The Classhall.
The workshop will be facilitated by Lorna Gold who has worked with Trócaire since 2002 and holds a PhD in Economic Geography. To book a place contact Fiona at 059 6473600.
