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.

Change of Mass times
The number of Sunday Masses in Ss. Peter & Paul’s Church will be reduced from 3 to 2, commencing on Sunday 6th October 2013. Mass will be at 10.00am and 11.30am on Sunday, while the Vigil Mass will continue to be at 6.30am on Saturday. We regret this change. The decision was made by the Parish Pastoral Council due to the reduced number of priests in the parish following the appointment of Fr. John McManus as Parish Priest of Ballagh. He will not be replaced. Also, Baptisms will take place on Saturdays at 2pm in future.
