Race Nite for Toonagh School:  The Board of Management & Parents Association of Toonagh School are embarking on a project to convert the grass playing field at the rear of the school, which is waterlogged for many months of the year,  to an 'all weather facility' which will enable the children to take part in physical activities throughout the school year.
Representatives will call to businesses in the local and surrounding areas over the next few weeks, looking for their support for a fundraising Race Nite to be held in Hotel Woodstock on July 8th next. While acknowledging that these are challenging times for people running a business, nevertheless, it is hoped that there will be a good response for the venture, which will ensure that the children attending Toonagh School now, and into the future, will get full use of all the facilities the school has to offer, indoor and outdoor. Parents have cards, should anyone wish to buy a horse.

 

Imeall Bóirne Pilgrimage to Croagh Patrick will take place on Saturday 23rd July. Bus leaving Corofin at 8:00 am.  Contact Fr Damian at 086-8396636 to book a place.

Justice and Peace:  The former British Prime Minister Benjamin D'Israeli said that "Justice is truth in action".  The Killaloe Diocesan Pastoral Plan, Builders of Hope, initiated by Bishop Kieran O'Reilly seeks to put truth into action.  Does justice matter to you?  Do you believe that injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere?  Do you believe the Church should have a voice on local justice matters?  Do you believe you have a voice?  If so, the Justice & Peace strand of the Pastoral Plan is something you should and must be involved in.  For more information contact Fr. Gerard Fitzgerald at fitz.ger@gmail.com or on (065) 6824043 for more information.
