Fun at St Pa­trick’s

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - NEWS -

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.
