ALMA – Lourdes Youth Pilgrimage, 19th – 30th July 2018

Association of Lourdes Motherwell Aid (ALMA) is a group of young volunteers who accompany the diocesan pilgrimage giving essential support to the sick, elderly and infirm.

Places are limited, so register interest early by speaking to Father Martin.  Young people must be 17 years old (and have finished secondary school) at the time of travel.

There will be a meeting at 7 pm at the Diocesan centre in Motherwell on 19th September.

Advent

Fr Martin Delaney will lead advent services over the coming two weeks for individual house groups. Meanwhile S1 RE classes will be trying to raise money over Advent to buy a present for Iraqi child refugees. The presents will be delivered to the camps in Iraq via the Aid to the Church in Need charity.

Other RE classes are being asked to bring in non-perishable goods which will be made into food parcels by our Caritas class and shared across the local area.
