Parish Retreat (Open to Everyone)
Directed by Fr. Flann Lynch OFM Capuchin
Theme: Christian vision, hope and possibility
This retreat will identify the thinking and attitude that undermines the vision and will discover the attitudes and tools that make the vision a reality in everyday living.

Adrian Ward’s Haiti Trip
We were working on an Island just off Haiti this time called Il e Vache ,its a little bigger than Arranmore with 14 000 people living on it, there’s no water, power nor even a road, only a stony gravel path that runs from one end of the Island to the other. The work we carried out was on an Orphanage & a School where they are left in because their parents couldn’t keep them because of disability or because their parents had died. It’s like travelling back 150 years in time; these people are being given a chance because of these places. I would like to thank you all for your help and support and prayers
