Drum Church Window Repairs
The stained glass windows in St. Brigid’s Church, Drum are currently in a poor state of repair. Quotes were sought from various companies to carry out the work. At a public meeting in Drum Parish Hall on Tuesday 11th September, it was decided to award the contract to a company from Belfast who have carried out similar work at other churches in the diocese. The cost of the work will be €45,000 and an application has been made to the diocese for an interest-free loan over a four year period. It was also decided at the meeting to introduce a second collection at all weekend masses in the church in order to meet the repayments. Further details to follow.

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.
