A word of thanks
Thank you to all who helped in organising and supporting The Priests’ Concert in Ss. Peter & Paul’s Church recently. The concert was a great success. The Finance Committee hope to have proceeds in excess of €12,000 towards the church maintenance fund.

Society of St. Vincent de Paul
Recruiting volunteer workers to work in their Athlone shop. Do you have 3.5 hours spare per week and are you flexible? If so, contact 090-6444044.

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, or to revive the tradition if it has declined in your area/townland.
