Thought for the Week

"Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier.

Be the living expression of God's kindness in your face,

Kindness in your eyes, Kindness in your smile"

 (Mother Teresa of Calcutta)

IMEALL BOIRNE CLUSTER MISSION / RETREAT:  It is proposed to hold a Mission/Retreat during the coming year incorporating the four parishes – Corofin, Crusheen, Ruan and Tubber. In order to offer what is most appealing to the people, your thoughts on these questions would be appreciated:

  1. What type of mission/retreat would you most like?
  2. If you would like to attend, what time of day/evening is best for you?
  3. As this is a cluster event, where do you think is the best venue for it?
  4. Are there particular themes/topics you would like to consider during the mission/retreat?
  5. Any other suggestions?
