Sincere thanks to all who organised & participated in the concert in aid of SERVE, Brazil. The amount raised was €2,350 which included an anonymous donation. There is still a need to raise €1, 250 to cover the €900 each for the four people travelling from the parish. This does not go directly towards their fare but towards building material for the project. Ideas would be appreciated!! Belfast City Marathon for SERVE on May Bank Holiday Monday hopefully helped through Sponsorship Cards. All proceeds towards the North Louth Serve Team who will travel to N.W. Brazil in July to work with local people on a house building project for the poor. The trip will conclude with World Youth Day in Rio de Janeiro in the company of Pope Francis. Please give what you can.
