Éadaoin Rose West

Wedding Bells
Congratulations to Julie Curley and Paul Jerham on their recent wedding. May they be blessed with a long and happy life together.

Autumn Stations
Anyone who would like to host the stations in their home this autumn is asked to contact Drum Parish Office at 6437125 to arrange a date. This is a lovely tradition which has been passed down through generations in our parish but would seem to be in decline in recent times. Perhaps you would consider hosting the station mass for your area to ensure the tradition continues for another generation.
