Sadly Outreach Moldova’s Operation Santa (the shoebox appeal) will not be taking place this year as the recession takes its toll on the charity. Clare McLoughlin (Drumshanbo) and Annmarie McNiff (Keadue) would like to thank all the people and local organisations who over the last 5 years have supported the shoebox appeal and brought such delight to so many children.
We welcome the new Bishop of Ardagh and Clonmacnoise, Rev. Francis Duffy who was ordained on Sunday last at a service in St Mary’s Church, Athlone. We wish him well in his ministry with us. We also wish retiring bishop, Colm O’Reilly well in his retirement and thank him for his leadership and for attending to our spiritual needs over his 30 year tenure. Rev. Colm was a bishop of the people and a pleasure to meet.
